Work Study

BSU employs over 1,400 students over the course of a year and offers a variety of employment opportunities both on and off campus. Our student payroll totals over $2.3 million annually with about $800,000 falling under the need-based federal or state work study programs. These jobs offer the ability to develop relevant skills, provide a reliable source of income, and have flexibility to accommodate the student’s class and extra-curricular schedules. You need to complete the FAFSA by the priority deadline of January 1 and answer YES to the work study question on the FAFSA to be considered for the program.  If you are awarded work study,  you will need to accept your award in e-Services.  Print the Work Study Authorization Contract and take the form with you when applying for a work study position.  Your work study earnings will be processed bi-weekly on the student payroll system. You can sign up for direct deposit in e-Services. Earnings will not be credited to your student bill unlike other aid programs.
