Student Employment

Federal Work-Study Program (FWS)

The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) is a federally-sponsored work program for students who demonstrate financial need. FWS earnings for hours worked are distributed in the form of a paycheck or direct deposit into your existing bank account, and cannot, therefore, be used toward tuition and fee charges.

On-campus Employment

Students who are not eligible for Federal Work-Study funding may be able to obtain part-time positions on-campus.

Obtaining a Position and Getting Paid

Iona College uses a web-based service to help employers and students in the job posting and placement process.

With this tool, students will be able to:

  • Search for Work-Study jobs on line.
  • Receive automated email when preferred jobs become available.
  • Apply for jobs online.

We encourage students to review the Quick Reference Guide  and to elect direct deposit of student employment earnings.
