Those plans will be communicated as soon as they are finalized and updates will be given throughout the semester.
Federal Work Study (FWS) is an aid program funded with federal dollars and designed to offer part-time employment to students. The opportunity for students to utilize the work-study program will continue through either working remotely or working with employees who will be authorized for return to campus.
