Student Employment Program

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 FWS funds must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents awarded annually in the Fall semester and must be enrolled for at least 12 credit hours in the Day program and does not have a prior bachelor's degree.
