Federal Work Study Student Procedures
File a Free Application for Federal Student Assistance (FAFSA) to apply for the Federal Work Study (FWS) Program.
Once FWS is awarded, you can check your myUCF account to see the amount of your FWS award.
Complete any items on your myUCF To Do List including the FWS Contract.
**If you are interested in working at a community service site off-campus, please contact the FWS Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
To find employment, FWS students will use Handshake to search for jobs across UCF campus.
For steps on how to set up your Handshake account and find FWS jobs, please review the following instruction manual: Handshake Manual
You will apply for the positions you find directly on Handshake. Be sure to apply for only FWS positions. You can find FWS jobs by searching “work study” in the filters in the left-hand section of the “Jobs” page.
The department will review applications and might contact you for an interview.
When attending interviews, bring these documents:
· Award Summary & Class Schedule from myUCF
· Social Security Card or Social Security Card Application Receipt
· Valid Driver’s License or Acceptable Form of Identification
If an agreement is made, the department will prepare a complete hiring packet and forward it to Human Resources.
You cannot begin working until you have completed a hiring packet from the department.
