Shenandoah University has three types of work programs for students:
- Federal Work-Study
- 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 $1,000. A normal workweek consists of 6 to 10 hours. 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 paperwork to Human Resources. Students should check their email regularly for details.
