State Work Study
State Work Study (SWS) is funded by the State Legislature and administered by the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) through Financial Aid. These funds are generally used for off-campus jobs related to the student’s major and/or career goals. Like all work study programs, students must apply for financial aid through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have demonstrated need.
Employers can contact the Financial Aid office for information on becoming an approved employment site at 509-542-5504. Once approved, employers will receive information from the SWS Coordinator to post positions. A resume will be provided to the employer for each student applicant that is an academic match to the posted position. Employers will review, interview, and hire student employees and notify the SWS Coordinator of selected applicant.
Employers are responsible for paying the student’s wages earned and then submitting timesheet documentation for reimbursement to the Financial Aid office. To be reimbursed, employers will submit the SWS timesheet to the SWS Coordinator no later than 15 days after the end of each calendar month that the student is employed during the academic year (the SWS program does not reimburse over the summer break). Employers will be reimbursed a percentage of the student wages. The timesheet template will be sent to employers once they have hired a SWS student.
