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 $1000. A normal work week consists of 6 to 10 hours. Graduate or SEP positions have the potential to work as much as 20 hours per week. Students receive paychecks twice a month. This money can be used at the student’s discretion.
Students who are awarded Work-Study positions by the Financial Aid Office are required to go online and select positions they are interested in working. Once a supervisor selects a student, they will have to get a placement form from that supervisor and bring it to the Office of the Vice President for Administration & Finance.
