Work-Study for Students

For students who have completed the FAFSA and been awarded Federal Work-Study on UAConnect for the current semesters:

Follow these four steps to get your own Work-Study Job Assignment*

  1. Review the Listing of Work-Study Jobs.  
  2. Contact the Supervisor to apply for the job in which you are interested.
  3. Discuss the details of employment with the Supervisor:
    • Number of hours per week
    • Job responsibilities
    • Hourly wage rate
  4. The Supervisor contacts the Office of Financial Aid to complete the assignment.

The Supervisor may request that you pick up a job assignment form at the Financial Aid Office.

For students who have not been awarded Federal Work-Study and are interested in working on campus, please visit Applying for Student Employment on the University of Arkansas HR website or the Career Development Center website for other opportunities. 

 *If you choose not to use your work study award, please login to your Student Center and navigate to Student Center > Finances > Financial Aid > Accept/Decline Awards. From there you can decline your Federal Work-Study award. We can use the funds you reject for another student who wants work study.
