D'Youville College offers two student employment programs to assist our students; the Federal Work-Study Program and the Student Employment Program.

Federal Work-Study Program (FWS)

The Federal Work-Study Program is a need-based employment program which provides part-time jobs for undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree students who are in need of earnings to meet a portion of their educational expenses.

If you are awarded FWS it will appear on your Financial Aid Award Letter. FWS is awarded based on need and availability of funds. FWS is limited to a maximum of $2,000 per academic year.

Student Employment Program (SEP)

This is an on-campus employment opportunity program similar to FWS except SEP is funded entirely by the college.

This program is not based on financial need, so any student not receiving FWS is eligible to apply. Before applying to this program, U.S. students must obtain a form verifying that they are not eligible for FWS from the Financial Aid Office.

This program is also available to International and Canadian students seeking employment at D'Youville College.

More information about the Student Employment Program can be found on the D'Youville Freshman Experience page.
