Federal Work-Study (FWS)

The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program helps students earn money for educational expenses while providing work experience.

What is Federal Work-Study (FWS)?

The mission of Campus, formerly MTI College, is to prepare its students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary for pursuing successful careers. The student population that Campus serves includes the community of recent high school graduates and adult learners in Northern California who demonstrate the potential to benefit from the institution's educational programs.

Students who are eligible for Federal Work-Study can work part-time while enrolled in school, whether they are full-time or part-time students.

Most schools participating in the FWS program have both off-campus and on-campus jobs. On-campus jobs are generally working for the school itself. Off-campus work will be in your field of study, usually a non-profit organization that benefits the local Sacramento community.

Contact the Financial Aid department at Campus, formerly MTI College, to find out more about Federal Work-Study opportunities.


To be eligible for Federal Work-Study, the student must:

  • Have completed the FAFSA.
  • Meet Satisfactory Academic Progress.
  • Be enrolled at least half-time in a degree or certificate program.

Students are not guaranteed a FWS job, even if they are eligible for Federal Work-Study. The number of Work-Study jobs are limited; make sure to apply as early as possible.
