There are many opportunities open to Veterans on campus to earn while you learn. Typically, work study positions fall into two categories: VA work study and federal work study.
VA Work Study
Any veteran student that is a ¾ time student or 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% or more
How do I apply?
Any student may apply to this program by either directly contacting a VA representative or by downloading a copy of the application required. To directly contact the VA, call them at 1-888-GI-BILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) or for any further questions regarding VA work study, visit their Web site. After completing the forms required, veteran students may turn in application to the ONU Financial Aid office.
Federal Work Study
Opportunities for work study exist on campus. We cannot guarantee that every student gets an on-campus job. Participation in the federal workstudy program requires a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Each year a new FAFSA is required to determine continued workstudy eligibility.
