The Federal and State (eligible Colorado residents only) College Work-Study Program, administered by the Financial Aid Office, provides part-time employment opportunities for qualified students.
Students average 12 hours of work per week and earn between $1,000 and $3,000 total per academic year. Awards are based on an evaluation of students’ financial need using the FAFSA. Students must file a FAFSA to be considered for work study.
