Students must submit a FAFSA Form to determine eligibility and be enrolled at least half-time (6 credits or more) per semester.
The Career Services Office places students in on-campus positions, as well as has information for off campus internship and employment opportunities. For more information go to www.svsu.edu/careers.
Full job descriptions are available on the Cardinal Job Network (www.svsu.edu/careers). Please be sure to carefully READ each job description as the positions have different needs in terms of work study status or working shift hours.
If you have questions on applying, you should contact Career Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How will I know if I am eligible?
Your Financial Aid Award Letter, viewable at my.svsu.edu under Self-Service/Cardinal Direct, may reflect that you are eligible for Federal College Work Study. For this to happen automatically, you had to have expressed interest in work study on your FAFSA and be eligible for the award.
What if my award letter does not reflect a Work Study Award?
Is the awarded amount listed on my award letter applied to the cost of my tuition?
Work-study funds do not initially count toward any bill a student may have at SVSU. The student earns work-study funds if they are hired into a position, and the student receives a paycheck every other week. The student may choose to use the funds to pay off remaining balances at SVSU, but still needs to adhere to all payment deadlines. A work-study award does not guarantee a job for the student; it just means that the student is eligible. The student needs to fill out a job application, see www.svsu.edu/careers for more information.
