Financial Aid

Work-Study Program

Gain experience and pay your tuition at the same time

Work-study provides students a way to pay for school through a part-time job on campus. After a student submits their FAFSA application, they can apply for a work-study position if they have unmet needs based on the results of their FAFSA application. The Federal Work-Study Program is authorized and funded by the Federal Government, and only the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office may award Utah Tech Work-study funds. Eligible students will receive their Work-study award as part of their total financial aid award only after they have received a work-study job offer.

All available positions will be posted by December 18th for the Spring 2024 semester.

How do I apply?

Work-study funds are part of a student’s financial aid package and cannot be awarded unless you have submitted a FAFSA and have documented need. You can complete your FAFSA application online at

I have a completed FAFSA. What’s Next?

  1. Complete the Work Study Application for Employment on Handshake . Be sure to complete each item, especially a current phone number where you can be reached. Once you submit the application, it will be forwarded to department’s supervisor.
  2. You will be contacted by phone or student email about the position you applied for.
  3. If hired, the Financial Aid Office will contact you through your student email with New Employee Orientation dates and times.

Keep in Mind:

  • A work-study award is not a guaranteed job. The responsibility of locating and obtaining a job is up to you.
  • Work-study funds are awarded on a first-come, first served basis.
  • Because of limited funds, you should apply for financial aid early if you wish to participate in the work-study program.
  • A work-study award generally allows you to work 15-20 hours a week.
  • Work-study is offerred during the Fall and Spring Semesters only. There are no positions available during Summer.
