Work-Study vs Non Work-Study

Work-Study and Community Service Work-Study positions require a type of federal aid called Work-Study. This type of financial aid is available in the fall & winter semesters. Work-Study and Community Service Work-Study positions are only available to students that have a Work-Study Award, as wages are paid from these funds. This program reduces costs for GRCC while increasing employment opportunities for students on-campus.

Non Work-Study positions do not require a Work-Study award, though students with Work-Study are welcome to apply.

Work-Study Eligibility

Work-Study eligibility is determined by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submitting a Work-Study Request Form (see below). It is awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis.

After obtaining a Work-Study award, students may apply for Work-Study and Non Work-Study positions.

Students employed in a Work-Study or Community Work-Study position will receive their Work-Study award in bi-weekly paychecks based on hourly wage and hours worked.
