Federal Work Study maximum hours increased for spring 2024

Beginning spring 2024, students employed in a Federal Work Study position will now be allowed to work up to 30 hours per week. Keep in mind that scheduled hours are determined by department needs.

Federal Work Study program is a need-based financial aid program that offers employment opportunities for students with financial need. The program provides students with valuable work experience, skills, flexible work schedules and enhances their education while providing financial assistance.

With the change in maximum hours, the hope is to increase on-campus employment opportunities for students while providing additional financial assistance, valuable work experiences and enhancing educational experiences at Wichita State.

All other eligibility requirements for Federal Work Study employment remain in effect.
