Shenandoah University has three types of work programs for students:

  • Federal Work Study
  • Community Service
  • Institutional Work Study

These programs are awarded by the Financial Aid Office. These programs are based on need, which requires each student to file a FAFSA form. The average award for a semester is $750. A normal work week consists from 8 to 10 hours. Students receive paychecks twice a month. This money can be used at the student’s discretion. Students who are awarded by the Financial Aid Office are assigned a position by the Office of the Vice President for Administration & Finance. Student’s receive a Work-Study Placement Form and are asked to complete it and return it with their award letters to Financial Aid. Some jobs are off-campus and require students have transportation. If you are willing and have transportation, please indicate this on your paperwork.
