Work Study programs provide students with part-time employment that assists with their educational costs. 

The Financial Aid Office oversees work study programs that place students in college departments where they assist with clerical work and perform other duties. Students earn the current minimum page per hour and work a maximum of 15-20 hours per week. Timesheets are submitted on the last day of the month, and students are paid on the 15th of the month. 

To apply for and verify your eligibility for Work Study, set up an appointment with the SFSC Career Development Center: 863-784-7442.     

Federal Work Study Program (FWS)

The Federal Work Study Program is a need-based program that provides part-time employment to students with financial need. A limited number of positions are available per term.

Requirements for federal work-study positions:

  • Your FAFSA must be on file in the Financial Aid Office.
  • You have a unmet need.
  • You are enrolled in at least six credit hours.
  • You have a minimum 2.0 GPA.

Internal Work Study Program (IWS)

The Internal Work Study Program is similar to the federal program; however, financial need is not a factor. Students are paid minimum wage and may work up to 12 hours per week in approved positions.

Florida Work Experience Program (FWEP)

The Florida Work Experience Program is a need-based program funded by the state of Florida to provide eligible SFSC students work experience that will complement and reinforce their educational and career goals. As with other need-based state programs, information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine eligibility for FWEP funds.
