Federal Work Study Student Employment


Southeast Arkansas College participates in the Federal Work-Study program. Federal Work-Study is a campus-based program that provides part-time, on-campus employment or off-campus employment in community service activities. Student workers may work a maximum of 20 hours per week. An institution of higher learning must pay students employed under the Federal Work-Study program at least the federal minimum wage or the state minimum wage, whichever is higher. Effective January 1, 2019, the Arkansas minimum wage is $9.25 per hour.

Federal Work-Study is need-based and eligibility is determined using information from the FAFSA report. Students applying for Work-Study must be maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress and must be enrolled a minimum of six semester credit hours.

Applications for Federal Work-Study jobs are available from the Financial Aid Office. The completed application should be presented to the Financial Aid Office for eligibility verification. The application will then be forwarded to the Federal Work-Study program administrator for consideration of employment.
