Student Employment

Federal Work Study Program: The Federal Work Study (FWS) program provides a limited number of jobs for eligible students as determined by the application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Most of the FWS opportunities are on campus. Students may work up to twenty (20) hours per week during the semester and up to forty (40) hours per week during semester break periods. Wages depend on the job responsibilities and the student’s qualifications. Eligible applicants should contact the Financial Aid Office on each campus for information on available FWS positions.

Part–Time Employment: Students who are not eligible for the Federal Work Study program may still find part-time employment on or off campus. Information on position openings is available through alaska.edu/jobs.
