Federal work-study is a need-based, government program granted to students who qualify. Students must work on campus to receive the federal work-study award.
Award money is included in the student’s paycheck, not credited to the student’s APU tuition account. Qualified recipients must seek employment on campus or the funds will be removed from their financial aid. Department managers and supervisors will make every attempt to hire a federal work-study recipient according to their qualifications, skills, and career goals. Certain departments are not qualified to pay under this program (e.g., the Office of Corporate Worship).
