Eligible EFSC students can now apply for work-study positions through our online system. Review the details below and follow the steps to check out open positions and apply online. Don't miss out on work-study money as part of your aid package!


The federal work-study program facilitates part-time, on-campus jobs that allow you to earn up to $3,000 per term toward your educational expenses. These positions are need-based and have flexible hours that work around your class and exam schedules.

Review the details below about how to apply for a work-study job using our new and improved online system. If you're hired for a position, you'll earn an hourly wage and be permitted to work up to 28 hours per week.

Work-study funds are distributed via biweekly paychecks over the course of the term and cannot be used to pay your EFSC invoice, as the fee due date occurs before the start of the term. 

If you have questions about work-study, email or call 321-433-7339. For questions about other types of financial aid at EFSC, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

How to Find a Work-Study Position

Follow the steps below and be sure to apply for financial aid as early as possible so you can find out if work-study will be part of your aid offer. Because your financial situation can change, you must reapply each academic year. Depending on departmental needs, the availability of work-study positions may differ each term so check back here for open positions.

Accept Your Work-Study Offer or Request Eligibility

When you complete the FAFSA, EFSC will determine your financial aid eligibility; however, because work-study requires financial need, not everyone qualifies for the program.

Because of a recent update to the process, if you are eligible for work-study, your EFSC Aid Package will now indicate that and you should accept the offer inside the Financial Aid section of Titan Web in the myEFSC Portal. Then you can move on to the next step to apply for a job!

If your 2023-24 Aid Package was sent to you before this change in the work-study process, you can still ask us to determine if you might be eligible. Visit the work-study section of our receiving your aid web page for details on how to request that review. The Financial Aid Office will review your account and send you an email notification containing your eligibility outcome and based on that, you can apply for jobs following the info in step 2.

Click to Explore Open Positions & Apply

If you're determined to be eligible for work-study funding, select a campus from the drop-down list below to explore which departments have open positions.

When you've found a position that interests you, click the "How to Apply" link at the bottom of each job description and you will be asked to log in with your student Titan Sign-In credentials.

The online system will let you apply for more than one job at a time if you want and you have the option to upload a résumé and/or cover letter so have those optional items ready. Once you submit an application, you will be contacted about eligibility and to arrange an interview.

Complete Your Interview, Paperwork and Background Check

This interview step of the process enables your potential supervisor to determine if you have the skills, qualifications, and availability required for the job. It also gives you the chance to ask questions and learn more about the position.

Following your interview, if you're selected as the final candidate for a position, you'll be required to:

  • Complete additional paperwork and
  • Visit Campus Security to be fingerprinted for a background check.

You can't be hired for any position at EFSC until Human Resources has reviewed and approved your background check.

Once this step is complete, you'll be notified of the final hiring decision through your student email.

Remember that your work-study funds will come to you as biweekly paychecks over the course of the term.

Review Dress Code, Cell Phone and Attendance Policies

Work Study Student Dress Code: Appropriate attire assigned by the department, which is generall business casual. Business casual is typically defined as dark jeans with no holes or fraying, no shorts, no short dresses or short skirts for women, optional ties for men, and a rotation of button-downs or blouses. Business casual dressing is more about avoiding a list of "don'ts" than following a list of "dos" and can vary slightly depending on style, preference, and gender presentation. For example, Athletics workers may wear shorts and college T-shirts depending on the weather and activity, but they should be neat and without holes or fraying.

Work Study Cell Phone Policy: Cell phones are to be set on mute during work hours unless in case of an emergency. 

Work Study Attendance Policy: Students must sign in and out upon their arrival and departure.
