Federal Work Study Program

The purpose of the Federal Work Study Program is to provide students with a convenient job on campus. Emphasis is on work rather than study, and students are encouraged to work in positions in which they have particular career or educational interests. Please note that a work-study award does NOT guarantee employment on-campus. Priority will be given to those who complete all financial paperwork before the priority deadline of March 1, 2010.

A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed each academic year you wish to be considered for financial aid and federal work study. You may complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The priority deadline for applications for the new academic year is March 1, 2010. Any application received after this date may be considered; however, there may be a limited amount of funds and or space available. A student may not begin working until all financial aid documents are received and reviewed by a counselor.

You must complete the Employment Confidentiality Agreement and submit it to the Office of Student Administrative Services (SAS).

You are required to attend a Federal Work Study Meeting with Human Resources. During this orientation you will complete the needed documents for employment at Lynn University. Each student will need to provide “proof of eligibility to work” with such documents as a drivers’ license and social security card or a U.S Passport.

Please check in SAS or in Human Resources during orientation for the time and location of the Federal Work Study meeting. Also, check your Lynn email for the announcement of the meeting.
