Financial Aid

Student Employment

There are many opportunities to work part-time while attending school at UW-Stevens Point, and well over 1,600 students do just that. While hundreds of others are assisted with finding work in the community. Many others find work themselves. Working part-time while attending school is a very popular option for many students.
 

College Work Study Program

Eligibility is based upon desire to work (which is indicated on the FAFSA), class level, and need. Students may reduce the amount on the award notice if less work is anticipated. Note: unlike other employment, earnings from Federal work-study jobs are disregarded when determing future financial aid eligibility.
