Work Study

Federal Work-Study is a need-based financial aid award that requires a FAFSA application.

Undergraduate students are automatically reviewed for eligibility and if eligible, it will appear on your Financial Aid award letter/mytalladega.

How to Apply for Work-Study positions

Students eligible to participate in the Federal College Work-Study Program may apply for on campus jobs.

  1. The Financial Aid Office will notify students via their “mytalladega” e-mail address upon the acceptance of the financial aid package.  This e-mail will alert students of additional information.
  2. The Work-Study award will appear on a student’s Financial Aid award letter. It will not appear on your bill as a reduction of tuition.
  3. Students are to earn the award amount through working and receiving a paycheck.

  • Work-Study may reduce the amount approved by the school in additional loans such as Direct PLUS and alternative educational loans.
  • Openings may or may not occur throughout the academic year.
  • Placement is not guaranteed; it is contingent upon available jobs.
  • The work-study students and supervisors are responsible for making sure the correct hours are emailed to the Financial Aid Office on the designated monthly date (19th each month).
