Federal Work-Study (FWS) eligibility is based on established financial need and at least half-time enrollment of the individual student. Due to limited funding received by Georgia College for the FWS program each aid year, students completing the financial aid application process by the "Priority Package Deadline" of March 1 will be given priority consideration for FWS awards. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and other required documentation before eligibility can be determined. All FWS recipients will be able to view their award amount at http://paws.gcsu.edu. FWS recipients should choose and apply for position listings with FWS included in the title. A Student Employment Verification/Agreement Form (SEVAF), which may be obtained from the Georgia College Financial Aid Office, must be completed by the FWS student and the Department Supervisor. Once completed, the SEVAF should be returned to the Financial Aid Office before continuing the hiring process. FWS money is not available at registration to pay fees; students are paid bi-weekly for actual hours worked. Community service positions are also available through the FWS program.
