The Work-Study Program offers an opportunity for our students with financial need to seek employment on- and off-campus by allowing them to earn money to help pay for educational expenses.  Eligible students are offered a generic work-study award, which may vary per student. The generic award helps students market themselves within TAMUK for work-study positions.

Once awarded Work-Study as part of their financial aid package, it is up to the student to find an approved job. Available jobs and their description can be found via JavelinaCareers, once a profile has been created.

Work-study does not pay for tuition and fees; nor does it get disbursed with other financial aid awards. Students earn their work-study award by working up to 19 hours a week in our student employment program and received a bi-weekly paycheck.

Students can submit a request to be considered for workstudy by submitting a ‘wait-list request’. All eligible students will be considered if funding is available. If awarded, an email will be sent to a student after the term begins to inform the student on their eligibility.
