Work-study is a program that enables students to earn money by working part-time while attending college. The federal government, the state of Colorado, and the institution provide the funding for work-study assistance. Awards are primarily based on need as demonstrated by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). A limited number of awards are granted to students on a basis other than need. At Colorado Northwestern Community College, approximately 85 students are awarded each year on the basis of need. Approximately 40 students are awarded on a basis other than need. The average award is $2,500 per academic year. Your chances of receiving a work-study award are greatest if you complete the financial aid process prior to June 1. Colorado Northwestern Community College has work-study position in a number of areas, including but not limited to administrative office, student service offices, athletic departments, academic program areas, and student activity areas. Work-study employees average from 10 to 12 hours per week, and are paid $12.00 per hour.

Your responsibilities after accepting a work-study award:

Remember – It is clearly understood that academic schedules and programs must take precedence over employment requirements. Students offered and accepting part time employment are expected to coordinate their work schedule with their class schedule and supervisor. It is also understood that these are employment opportunities. Student employees are paid only for the hours actually worked. The college has no obligations to keep students who, consistently fail to meet work schedules or live up to the expected performance standards, in the work-study program.
