Work-Study/Employment Information

Federal College Work-Study Program (CWS)
Non-Work-Study Employment

At institutions of higher education, students can work on or off campus to earn money for educational expenses while they are enrolled. At Alfred University, part-time employment opportunities are available based on financial need or without regard to need. Many of our students participate in College Work-Study, the need-based employment program, while others secure employment which is not based on financial need (non-work-study employment).
