WORK STUDY PROGRAM
The Federal Work Study Program (FWSP) provides jobs for eligible students as determined through the federal application process. These students may earn money to cover part of their educational expenses. The students work in jobs on-campus, preferably in community service positions. Students must be enrolled with at least 6 credits and may work up to 20 hours per week during the semester. Wages depend on the job responsibilities.
STUDENT EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM
This is a college-funded program available to students who are enrolled in at least six credits. Jobs are on-campus and students may work up to 20 hours per week. For position possibilities, students should check the KPC website under Student Services/ Student Employment. Wages are based on job responsibility and supervision, as defined by UA standards. Most wages are comparable to off-campus, part-time employment wages.
VETERANS AFFAIRS WORK STUDY ALLOWANCE PROGRAM
The VA Work Study Allowance Program offers an additional non-taxable allowance to veteran students in return for performing VA related activities. It serves as a supplemental VA education benefit and often provides the additional funding that allows a student to pursue and accomplish academic goals. Work study students can work up to 25 hours per week and earn an hourly wage equal to the federal or state minimum wage, whichever is greater. The student must be enrolled in and pursuing an approved college degree, vocational or professional education program and taking at least nine credit hours for the semester.
