Work Study


Work-Study positions are jobs on campus that enable students to earn funds to assist with educational expenses.

Federal Work-Study (FWS)
The FWS Program provides part-time jobs for students enrolled at Daytona State College. Students must complete the FAFSA to apply for FWS. A student’s eligibility for FWS depends on the student’s need and on when the student applies. Since FWS funds are limited, the earlier the student applies for FWS, the more likely the student is to receive the award. For student employment opportunities...Click here!

The FWS Program enables students to earn money to assist with educational expenses. Students are paid on an hourly rate, which is at least equal to the current federal minimum wage. Students may be paid at a higher rate for jobs that require specific skills and or training. Students employed under the FWS Program are paid twice a month.

FWS students are placed in jobs working on-campus for the college or working off-campus for a community service organization. Working as an assistant in Daytona State College's Photography Museum or as an assistant in Daytona State College’s Wellness (fitness) Center are two examples of on-campus FWS employment. Working as a reading or math tutor in an elementary school or working with children at the Police Athletic League (PAL) are two examples of off-campus FWS employment.

A student interested in FWS should contact the Student Employment Coordinator to inquire about available job placements after he/she has received a financial aid award letter. The Student Employment Coordinator will inform the student of positions that are available and qualifications for the positions. Once the student has selected a position of interest, the student will arrange an interview with the prospective employer (supervisor.) If selected for employment, (there is no guarantee of employment) the student and supervisor will arrange a work schedule that accommodates the student’s class schedule. (Most students work an average of 20 hours per week.) The supervisor will give the student a job description and will discuss the responsibilities of the position. Each pay period, the supervisor will sign the student’s time sheet to certify that the student performed the assigned duties satisfactorily.

Additional information on FWS is available from the Student Employment Coordinator, located in the Financial Aid Services Office in the Wetherall Center (Building 100) on the Daytona Beach Campus or at 386-506-3023. 

Institutional Work-Study (IWS)

Work schedules are arranged around the student's class schedule. Students work an average of 20 hours per week. Eligibility is not based on need.
