Financial Aid and Scholarships

Federal Work Study

In partnership with the federal government, the Federal Work Study program finds part-time jobs for students, allowing them to earn money to pay for their education. The jobs encourage community service work and often are related to the student's academic pursuits. 

All work-study students must obtain a work study award from the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships before reporting to work. Students must also complete the FWS Student Information Session which will explain the hours to be worked, how and when students are paid and other terms of employment. Students will work either for CDU or for an approved community service participant. In order to continue to be eligible for work-study, work performance must be satisfactory at all times.

Priority for these funds is given to those students who demonstrate financial need as determined by the FAFSA to help reduce or eliminate loan indebtedness.
