Student Employment (Work Study) Awards are a form of “self-help” aid. Under these programs, the student obtains a work study position, either on- or off-campus and then works to earn their award. Student employment funds earned do NOT have to be repaid; however, the student must work to earn the award. If the student does not earn his/her full award amount for the academic year, the remaining award amount is forfeited.
To apply for Work Study, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and indicate an interest in work study funding. Funding for student employment programs at RCTC is limited, so apply early!
