Work-Study

Through the federal government, this program finds part-time jobs for students, allowing them to earn money to pay for their educations. The jobs encourage community service work and often are related to the student's major.  

Students work an assigned number of hours a week, depending on how much aid they'll receive under the program. They're paid the federal minimum wage.
 
All work-study students must obtain a study contract from the Office of Student Financial Aid before reporting to work. The contract will explain the hours to be worked, how and when students are paid and other terms. Students will work either for Voorhees College or for an approved off-campus agency. In order to continue to be eligible for work-study, work performance must be satisfactory at all times.
 
Priority for these funds is given to freshmen and sophomores to help reduce or eliminate loan indebtedness in the early years.
