Student Work-Study Eligibility

To qualify for the Work-Study program, students must meet federal eligibility guidelines.

If a student’s eligibility changes at any time during the academic year or summer program, Boston University Financial Assistance may need to adjust or cancel his or her Work-Study award. Circumstances which may require this include, but are not limited to, withdrawal from the University, failure to maintain a satisfactory grade point average, or the addition of financial assistance from outside sources.

Please Note: If a student’s Work-Study award is canceled, the student is no longer eligible to work in the Work-Study program. Any hours the student works beyond the cancellation of the award must be paid in full by the employing agency. Students may not volunteer for the same position after working in that position under the Work-Study program.
