The Work-Study Program is a federally funded grant program which provides employment for students to help with the cost of education. If you have additional questions, see FAQs or a Financial Aid Advisor during walk-in hours. Please call (209) 667-3336.
If I am awarded Work-Study, what is my next step?
- Accept your award
- Apply for a job (You may begin seeking job placements as early as August)
- Fill out the Student Assistant Employment Application and submit it to the appropriate department you're applying for.
Funding is limited! Students may begin working the first day of each semester; or the date the hiring process is completed, whichever date is later.
Before you can begin work:
First Time Work-Study Employee
If you are a first time work-study employee that has been hired (not previously employed), a sign-in session with Human Resources is required prior to beginning work. Students will need to bring acceptable identification to one of the scheduled Sign-Ins. For more information please visit Human Resources website.
* If one of the sign-in sessions conflicts with a student's classes, an appointment may be scheduled online at: https://www.csustan.edu/hr/student-employment/new-student-employee-sign OR by contacting Human Resources Department (MSR 320 Building #27 see map) at (209) 667-3351.
NOTE: If your Federal Work-Study award is not accepted it or if you have not found employment it may be canceled. Cancellation is for the entire academic year.
