Students employed in Work-Study jobs earn money for their college costs through part-time employment in approved on-campus jobs or off-campus jobs at nonprofit and community service agencies. UCR also employs students who are not eligible for Work-Study in similar campus jobs and provides job listings for off-campus positions through our Career Center.
Federal Work-Study eligibility is based on financial need and the availability of funds for each award year.
Renewal awards are available to students with Federal Work-Study earnings in the previous award year.
When sufficient funds are available, it is sometimes possible to request replacement of a student loan with Work-Study.
