Federal Work-Study

After completing the FASFA if you meet the Federal Work-Study (FWS) eligibility requirements you will be contacted by the ARC Financial Aid Office regarding your eligibility.  Federal Work-Study (FWS) positions are available at American River College (ARC), including the Mather Center and Natomas Center.

Federal Work Study (FWS) Program

Important: Being FWS eligible does not guarantee you a FWS job - campus positions are limited and funding is on a first come first serve basis so don't delay.

Note: You cannot exceed your awarded hours.


How Do I Apply for a FWS Job

Important: You CANNOT start working until the department Supervisor receives conformation that your Intent to Employ packet has been processed.

Maintain FWS Eligibility Requirements


DISCLAIMER: The Financial Aid Office reserves the right to reduce your FWS award at the end of the Fall and Spring semester for hours not worked or due to ineligibility. Your FWS award may also be reduced at any time if your financial need changes. You will be notified of any change via email and it is your responsibility to notify your supervisor of the change.
