The Federal Work-Study program is a federal program that provides funds to assist students who are working while pursuing their education. These funds can be used for on-campus employment as well as off-campus jobs with qualifying employers (typically, non-profits and government agencies).
Because of the intensive nature of the first year of law school, first year students are not permitted to work and are not given Federal Work-Study during their first year. First year students interested in working for qualifying employers during the summer after their first year may apply for summer Work-Study in the spring of their first year.
Continuing students who wish to apply for Federal Work-Study for a summer term or the academic year need to complete a Federal Work-Study application, the Hastings Financial Aid Supplement, and the FAFSA by the annual financial aid priority deadline in February. Annual Work-Study applications and Financial Aid Supplements are available in January. Work-study funding is limited.
In addition to student employment covered by the Federal Work-Study program, there is non-Work-Study student employment available on campus. See a full description of the Student Employment Guidelines. Also see the Financial Aid Forms.
