What is the Work Study Program?

The Work-Study Program offers part-time and full-time, on-campus jobs for domestic eligible students.

The Financial Aid & Awards Office offers two Work Study Programs:

Part-Time Employment Program:

Students who are enrolled full-time and are working part time hours on campus. Students can work up to 24 hours a week.

Between Academic Terms (BAT) Program:

Students who are on a Co-op work term or those who are between academic terms (and not enrolled in any classes for the semester).

Note: For OSAP students all income earned during a school term must be reported to the Financial Aid Office and may impact a student’s OSAP funding.


Eligibility

Students are approved for the Work Study Program for one term and one on-campus employer only. Students must re-apply if they would like to continue for a second term.

Applications are accepted two weeks before the start of term. The deadline to apply is stated on the Work Study Application and is approximately 4 weeks from the start of classes each term.

Part-Time Employment:

1) Canadian Citizen, Permanent Resident, or a Protected Person.    

2) Full-time enrollment during the academic term. (60% course load or 40% with PD status)
