Student Employment Services, a unit within the Office of Student Financial Aid, is a resource to help interested students get support with the process and understand the types of work available to them:
- Federal Work Study (FWS) is a Title IV federal financial aid program that encourages undergraduate and graduate students with financial need to find part-time jobs, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. It is awarded to students based on their demonstrated financial need using information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students earn this money by working and receiving bi-weekly paychecks from Marquette’s Payroll Department.
- If your financial aid award includes FWS, you are also eligible for Community Service Federal Work Study (CSFWS) positions. These focus on improving the quality of life for community residents or solving problems related to their needs. They provide excellent opportunities to contribute to campus life as well as to the greater Milwaukee community.
- Marquette Student Employment (MSE) positions are available to any student at Marquette University regardless of their financial aid status. Many campus employers hire both FWS and MSE students. MSE positions are not federally funded, and students are not limited to the amount listed on the aid award offer. Like FWS jobs, students are paid by working and receiving biweekly paychecks from the university’s Payroll Department.
