Undergraduate Work Study

Work study provides you with an employment opportunity. The award is based on financial need, so not all students will qualify. If you are awarded work-study, you will need to accept the award under Awards at Texas State Self-Service. Career Services can then assist you in finding a position. Once you find a position and begin working, you will be paid twice per month based on the number of hours you work.

Remember that a work-study award amount is the maximum potential that you can earn, but actual earnings will depend upon the number of hours you work. Your work-study position is a real job that will enable you to develop work skills, network within your field and build references that will assist you in obtaining a job once you graduate.
