How Work-Study Works at Fuller
Your eligibility is an estimate of your potential earnings during the academic year if you decide to seek a work-study position at Fuller. The actual amount you could earn depends on the position and number of hours you work. You must apply for a work-study position, just like you would apply for a regular job through Human Resources. The department that has listed a work-study position is responsible for interviewing and hiring the work-study employee. You should apply for a position only after the Office of Financial Aid has determined your eligibility to participate in the Work-Study Program.
For some students, accepting a work-study position will replace a portion of their student loan eligibility. Contact the Office of Financial Aid for specific information on how a work-study position may affect your financial aid award. Please note that eligibility for work-study is not a guarantee of employment.
