Important Information for Potential Work Study Student Employees:

Please make sure that you have been awarded Work Study in your financial aid package before you download any hiring forms. To check to see if you have Work Study, you can log onto your Banner Self Service account then select "Financial Aid" then "Awards." If you have not been awarded Work Study in your financial aid package, you will not have access to apply for a job. You are able to email financialaid@downstate.edu to be reviewed for eligibility. Also, Federal Work Study will not be awarded for the sole purpose of helping students become eligible for additional government benefits such as Food Stamps.

A Work Study award is not a guarantee of a job. Positions are limited. Students are limited to only one work study position.  Work Study allows a student the potential to earn a specified sum of money by turning in biweekly time sheets for the hours that you have worked.  To secure a work study position you'll need to read the hiring instructions listed on the main page and then apply online.
