Work Study Program Work-Study is a need-based financial aid employment award and is available to undergraduates, post- baccalaureates and graduates during the academic year. Hourly wages begin at minimum wage and go up to $15+ per hour. If you have a subsidized loan, you are probably eligible. Eligible students will receive the Work-Study Personnel Action Form in the mail soon after the initial Financial Aid award if you checked on the FAFSA that you are interested in Work-Study. If you did not check the FAFSA but would like Work-Study, see a Financial Aid Counselor. Go to the Student Employment Website www.cwu.edu/~seo for more information and to search the online Job Board. Contact Student Employment or Financial Aid if you have questions.
Summer Session Summer 2012 aid will require a 2011-2012 FAFSA.
To receive a Pell Grant during the Summer you may also submit the 2012-2013 FAFSA.
Summer information and application available spring quarter at www.cwu.edu/~finaid
Financial Aid Adjustments You are required to report all resources such as scholar- ships, guaranteed sources, and DVR. We will make neces- sary adjustments. It is always our intention to make ad- justments to the best advantage of the student if possible. Financial Aid is credited to your account by the third day of class if you are pre-enrolled in 12 credits (10 if Mas- ters). Adjustments are made for less than full-time enroll- ment on Census date (immediately following add/drop). Please see www.cwu.edu/~sfs for Refund day. Students who receive financial aid funds and consider withdrawing during the quarter should meet with a Financial Aid Coun- selor prior to withdrawal to discuss resulting financial obli- gation. Complete withdrawal always results in Financial aid suspension, but may be appealed for special circum- stances. The Return of Funds Policy is available on line at www.cwu.edu/~finaid. Click on Financial Aid Hand- book 2011-2012.
A grade of No-show can result in some or all aid being canceled creating an immediate amount due.
