• Finding a Job

    Student Financial Services offers walk-in advising about Federal Work Study (FWS) hiring and payroll processes during our regular office hours.

    Work On Campus

    Most FWS students prefer to work on-campus, but suitable positions are limited. Once you know that you have a work-study award, don't delay looking for a job. FWS positions on campus are listed online at, with contact information for the hiring supervisor.

    • First Register at Registration enables you to search and apply for jobs online. You can post your résumé, cover letter, and FWS Eligibility letter under "Other Document" as a proof of your FWS award. Offices looking for work-study employees will often review résumés and contact suitable candidates themselves.
    • Once you are registered, you can search for positions that interest you and apply directly to the supervisors.
    • Once you find a job, you will receive an email from the university Office of Human Resources department asking you to submit the legal paperwork to be hired. Do not submit any hiring documents to Student Financial Services. Your supervisor will notify us electronically when you are officially hired. At that point, we will validate you FWS award.
    • You may not begin working until all HR documents have been processed and your supervisor notifies you.

    Work Off Campus

    Federal Work Study employment opportunities are also available off campus. Off-campus FWS must be in must be community service oriented as defined by federal regulations, which is work that improves the quality of life for local communities, especially underprivileged communities, by addressing needs such as health care, child care, adult literacy, child education, recreation, and other social services; transportation; housing and neighborhood improvement; rural development, and public safety. The New School has FWS contracts with a number of partners in our community. Below is a list of recent FWS employers. Students interested in finding off-campus jobs with any of these organizations should contact them directly.
