The Federal Work-Study Program is a need-based, federally funded,
part-time employment program. Your salary is paid jointly by federal
funds and by DePaul. The amount of your federal work-study eligibility
is based on your financial need.
When you accept federal work-study, it is your responsibility to seek employment through the Office of Student Employment,
which has offices on both campuses. Please note that work-study
dollars are paid directly to you for hours worked; funds are not
credited to your tuition account from this program. Your hourly rate of
pay will be based on the requirements of your job and on university pay
scales, but will not be less than the federal minimum wage. You will
receive a paycheck every other Friday.
