There are many opportunities on campus to earn while you learn. Typically, work-study positions fall into two categories: VA work study and federal work study.
Any veteran that is a ¾-time student to full-time student can earn money through the VA by becoming involved in the VA work-study allowance program.
Who is eligible?
Any student that draws any of the benefits mentioned on this website is eligible for the VA work-study allowance program. Eligibility does not mean that a veteran student is guaranteed a work-study position. The VA will select from eligible students based on the following factors:
- Disability of the veteran student or lack of disability
- Ability of student to complete work-study contract before the end of his or her eligibility to educational benefits through the VA
- Job availability within normal commuting distance to the student
- The VA will give the highest priority to a veteran who has a service-connected disability or disabilities rated by the VA at 30 percent or more
How do I apply?
Any student may apply to this program by contacting a VA representative at 888-GI-BILL-1 or by downloading a copy of the application. After all required forms are completed, applications should be submitted to the ONU Office of Financial Aid.
Participation in the federal work-study program requires filing of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Each year, a new FAFSA is required to determine continued work-study eligibility. Eligibility for funding does not guarantee an on-campus job.
