Welcome to Wayne County Community College District Federal Work-Study Website!
Federal Work-Study (FWS) may be offered as part of your total financial aid package and may be listed on your award. In order to be eligible for FWS, you must be enrolled at least half-time and have documented need. Your “need” is calculated based on the information submitted on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). FWS provides an excellent opportunity for you to earn money and obtain transferable job skills, all while attending WCCCD. You should file a FAFSA before the priority deadlines of March 1st if you are interested in FWS.
If you have been awarded FWS, you may accept or decline your Federal Work-Study award by contacting the Federal Work-Study Office. If you decline your Federal Work-Study, you must submit a brief letter stating, “You would like to decline your FWS,” including your name, student identification number (A#) and phone number where you can be reached. The District Financial Aid Office will cancel your FWS Award if you do not accept it within 30 days of receiving your award.
Note: The FWS Office will submit your name for cancellation of FWS funds after three unsuccessful attempts to contact you.
If you are not awarded FWS funds and would like to be considered, please contact the District Financial Aid’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are eligible, the District Financial Aid Office will contact you once funds are made available.
Again, welcome to the FWS website. If at any time you have questions about the program, please email the FWS Office at email email@example.com or contact us at (313) 496-2882.
