Federal Work-Study

Student's Guide

The purpose of this program is to provide students with part-time employment opportunities for those who have been awarded work-study funding. There are a variety of reasons students may have the desire to work: to help finance their education, to cover personal expenses, to gain valuable and satisfying work experience and to develop time management, research, library, computer, or communication skills. A portion of the student wages are paid from the work-study program funds and a portion by Claremont McKenna College. The Office of Financial Aid places accountability upon both the student and the work-study supervisor for participation in the program.
