Federal Work Study (FCWS)

and CCRI Student Help (SH)

Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study is one of the Title IV federal financial aid programs. It is awarded to students based on their demonstrated financial need using information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Federal Work Study positions can be found in nearly every office on campus, as well as in CCRI recreational facilities, libraries, and approved off-campus locations. Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress in order to be eligible. This means that you must follow the standards of academic progress as outlined on the Financial Aid website.

Federal College Work Study students may only work a maximum of 15 hours per week.

CCRI Student Help

If you do not apply for financial aid, apply for financial aid late, or do not have financial need, you may be offered CCRI Student Help.  This employment program is funded 100% by the college. Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress in order to be eligible. This means that you must follow the standards of academic progress as outlined on the Financial Aid website.

Both the Federal Work Study and Student Help programs allow students to work on campus.  Both are subject to Academic Eligibility as set forth by the Federal Government in the regulation of the Federal Work Study program.

CCRI Student Help students may only work a maximum of 15 hours per week.
