By participating in the Work-Study Program you can earn between $10 to $11 an hour, enhance your employment skills and gain valuable experience related to your academic and/or career goals. You can assist the College with its daily operations and possibly obtain a reference from your supervisor for future opportunities.

Nearly all work-study jobs are conveniently located on a NOVA campus and work schedules are generally flexible around your class schedule. Federal work-study earnings do not reduce your financial aid eligibility when you reapply for aid.
