What is Federal Work-Study?
Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a federally funded program that provides subsidized
part-time employment for students with financial need. The FWS amount
listed on your financial aid award letter is the allotment of money that
you may earn during the academic year. Earnings are used to help cover
expenses such as books, travel, and other personal expenses. Students
are paid twice a month for hours worked. Students who have questions regarding
their paychecks or timesheets should contact Methodist University's Payroll
Department at (910) 630-7023.
How do I get Work-Study?
Determination of eligibility for the FWS Program is made solely by the
Office of Financial Aid, based on federal regulations and information
of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students awarded
