Interested in becoming a work-study supervisor?

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a federally-funded financial aid program established to provide part-time employment opportunities for students with demonstrated financial need.

Carolina Works (WS) is an institutional work-study program established to provide employment opportunities to students who do not qualify for the Federal Work-Study process but have financial need and an interest in work-study.  Both programs are open to employers who meet FWS requirements to hire students through.

To become a part of the Work-Study Program (FWS, CW, or both), a supervisor must be a part of UNC or a community partner who has been approved by the Office of Scholarships & Student Aid. Choose the best option below to learn more.

Be sure to select the proper option below based on your specific agency. As a reminder on-campus supervisors are UNC affiliated with a SSO login and use the TIM payroll system. Off-campus supervisors are typically community service agencies or UNC affiliates without SSO login and the ability to use the TIM payroll system.

Email our work-study team to set up your site visit. During the visit Complete the employment agreement contract provided at the site visit
  7. After completing the above steps, you will go to the Jobx Login and request access!
