Work Study is a work program offered on a first-come, first-serve basis in which a student is employed part-time in an on-campus position while enrolled in school to help pay their education expenses.
Types of Work Study
- Federal Work Study: The Federal Work Study program is for students with financial need. Students must have the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with the Office of Financial Aid. Once the application has been processed, the student must contact the Financial Aid Office, (406-683-7511) to determine eligibility status.
- State Work Study: The State Work Study program is non-need based which means the student does not have to show need after completing the FAFSA. It requires the student to be a Montana resident and requires full-time (12+ hours) enrollment.
