Federal Work Study Program

The Federal Work Study program gives you the opportunity to work up to fifteen hours per week during the regular academic year (and in some cases, full-time during the summer months as well).

Eligibility: At least 6 credit hours, enrolled or non-enrolled with special approval, good academic standing, demonstrate financial need, U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen.

Amount: Hourly wages of at least the Federal minimum wage.

Repayment: None

How to apply: Students can check their eligibility for Federal-Work Study by submitting a request from their myGCC account under the Student Career and Employment tab.

NOTE: There are usually more students that are work study eligible than there are jobs. Students are encouraged to apply early for work study positions!
