At this time all federal work study funds have been exhausted. Unfortunately we are not able to make any more work study awards to students. More
funding may become available during the school year. If you wish to be placed on a
waitlist for consideration of work study funds, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 1: Find a Job
It is the student’s responsibility to seek out and apply for a FWS job by contacting
supervisors/departments around campus. Use the FWS Job Listing Document to view potential job positions on the Philadelphia and Georgia campuses. Schedule
a time to meet with the job's department supervisor to interview for the position
and discuss terms & hours.
Step 2: Complete Paperwork
After a student has been hired for a work study position, the student must complete
the below tax & employment paperwork. Returning students that worked a PCOM FWS position in the previous academic year do
not need to complete the below paperwork again and may continue to Step 3.
- W-4 Form
- I-9 Form
- Per page 9 of the form, you MUST bring in original ID document(s) to be reviewed by
a financial aid counselor. Most students bring in their current US Passport, or their
driver's license + social security card.
- PCOM Payroll Direct Deposit Form
- Per the form's instructions, students must also bring in a voided check.
- PA State Withholding Form
- To be completed by PCOM students that reside in NJ, MD, OH, VA, WV, or IN.
- GA State Withholding Form
- To be completed by GA-PCOM students.
Print & complete the appropriate forms and then visit your respective financial aid
office to review the documentation and present valid form(s) of ID.
Step 3: Award Form
After Step 2 is complete, the financial aid counselor will give the student a Federal
Work Study Award Form. The student and job supervisor will complete the FWS Award
Form and return it to their appropriate financial aid office.
Step 4: Authorization Email
After Step 3 is complete, the student must wait several business days for processing
to finalize. The student and their supervisor will receive a FWS Authorization Email.
The student may not begin working until they receive the FWS Authorization Email!
If you have additional questions, please contact your respective financial aid office.
