Work Study

​​Federal Work-Study

Federal College work-study provides eligible students the opportunity to work part-time while attending DMACC.  Work study positions typically pay $9.50 per hour and range from 10-15 hours per week on average. Work study employees earn paychecks which are directly deposited into a bank account of the employee's choosing twice each month. Income earned through the work study program is taxable.  In order to participate in the work study program, you must complete the FAFSA and be offered work study by Financial Aid. To determine if you have been offered work study, you may review your financial aid awards on the Web Info System available by accessing myDMACC. Keep in mind that you will only be able to review financial aid awards if you have received a notice from the Financial Aid Office at DMACC that you have been awarded financial aid. Students who are eligible for the program may apply for work study positions posted on this website. Due to the limited amount of federal funds, and limited availability of work-study positions, not every qualified student will obtain employment. 

If you have been offered College Federal Work-Study, please accept or decline the offer online on your E-Award notification.


Please see the application instructions and FAQ handout bel​ow for more information about the application process.
