Federal Work-Study (FWS) awards are made by Student Financial Services to eligible students for the academic year. Students must apply for financial aid to be considered. Work-Study "credit" is not applied to your bill. You will be paid weekly based on the actual hours you work.
For details on work-study programs, please go to the Student Employment Office website at www.sfs.upenn.edu/seo and click the Students tab. Direct inquiries to (215) 898-6966 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Penn Work-Study may be awarded in place of Federal Work-Study in cases where the combination of Federal Work-Study, grants and scholarships, and subsidized student loans would otherwise exceed federal need, based on the federal family contribution formula. Penn Work-Study works just like Federal Work-Study, except that the University’s financial aid funds, rather than federal funds, are used to pay part of your earnings. Students must apply for financial aid to be considered. Students with Penn Work-Study have equal access to listed work-study positions.

Your weekly pay will automatically be deposited into your personal bank account when you sign up for direct deposit. For more information, click here.
Students may request a loan in lieu of all or part of a work-study job. However, SFS encourages students to work in order to keep borrowing to a minimum.
