Federal Work Study (FWS) Program

A federally funded campus-based aid program designed to provide part-time jobs for eligible students. FWS jobs are primarily on-campus.

  • Eligibility is shown on your Financial Aid Award Notification on MyAkron.
  • Students awarded FWS can be paid from their FWS award for most on-campus student employment positions. Earnings are not applied directly to your bill (tuition, fees, etc.).
  • FWS earnings do not count against aid eligibility for the next year's FAFSA
