The Federal Work-Study (FWS) employment program is jointly funded by the federal government and CASC. FWS funds are limited per year. To be eligible for FWS, the student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), have financial need based on federal criteria, and be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester.
Students are limited to working a maximum of twenty (20) hours per week during periods of enrollment in which school is in session. Students wanting to work over a break will need to submit a Request for Semester Break Work form (found below). They will also need to check with their Department Supervisor to find out if that department allows students to work over breaks.
While the FWS positions are generally located on the CASC Poteau and Sallisaw campuses, there are also off campus options. Open positions will be listed below or on the bulletin board outside the Financial Aid office as they become available.
*Please note that hours are awarded based on the individual student’s needs and may be adjusted during the semester due to changes in their financial aid awards.*
*Eligibility does not guarantee an employment position.* Positions are available according to CASC need and funding.
