The Federal Workstudy Program provides on-campus jobs for qualified students.  Students are assigned to jobs in offices, maintenance, the library, the Child Development Center, and as various faculty aids. Campus jobs pay minimum wage. Although wages earned under the Federal Workstudy program are taxable, they are excluded from a student's adjusted gross income for Federal Student Aid Application (FAFSA) purposes. A student does not have to be eligible for Federal Workstudy funds to be a student worker for Jefferson College.
