Federal Work Study (FWS) is a federally funded financial aid employment program. Work Study jobs are available for students who were offered FWS as part of their financial aid package. Eligibility is based on need as determined by the FAFSA and the availability of funds at the time of application. You can check to see if you were offered FWS by logging into my.newpaltz and navigating to the my.financialaid section. A FWS award in not a guarantee of a job.
Student Assistant jobs provide on-campus employment opportunities for enrolled students regardless of financial need. Hiring decisions are made at the department-level, so students must apply directly with the on-campus department that interests them.
Students can search for part-time, full-time, or seasonal off-campus opportunities. Local employers can post jobs in the Job Locator Database and students can log in to view openings. Students are encouraged to make contact with any job that interests them. It is the responsibility of the student to finalize the details of the off- campus job with the employer who posts it.
