Federal Work Study

The Federal Work-Study Program is a need-based, financial aid student employment program. The student works in exchange for pay. This is a financial aid award that affects other aid eligibility.

The Federal Work-Study Program was established to provide opportunities for students to engage in part-time employment in order to meet a portion of the cost of their education. Funds are used to pay a portion of the wages of enrolled students, with the work-study employer making up the difference. All students who wish to participate in the Federal Work-Study Program must agree to the terms, responsibilities, and policies that relate to this program.

Eligible students must be enrolled at least half time at Pepperdine University School of Public Policy. The student must be Federal Work-Study eligible as required by the U.S. Department of Justice, Immigration, and Naturalization Service. In addition, a Federal Work-Study allocation must be awarded and will appear on the Estimated Eligibility Notification Letter. Students may check with the Office of Financial Aid if unsure about eligibility.
