For many students, employment can supplement or replace borrowing. Students should attempt to establish a reasonable balance between their academic efforts and work schedules. Consequently, student employees may not work more than 20 hours per week except during periods when classes are not in session.

Federal Work Study Program
Federal Work-Study (FWS) students receive priority placement in student employment on campus. FWS is a need-based financial aid program which provides part-time employment for students. Work-Study jobs assist students financially and may provide career related work experience. Pay rates vary depending on job requirements and student skills. To receive priority consideration, complete the FAFSA by March 2 for the upcoming year.
Students who are interested in a FWS position must make sure they have been awarded FWS. If not, they must contact the Financial Aid Office to see if they are eligible.
Once it is determined that a student has been accepted into the FWS program, he or she must go to the Career Center for assistance in finding an on-campus job and to complete the required paperwork.
If you are not awarded FWS or cannot secure a FWS job, you need not worry. Cal Maritime employs both work-study and non work-study students. Check with the Career Center for a listing of available jobs.
