Rowan University provides several part-time work programs for our students through a variety of channels. These Work-Study programs are designed to help both students and the departments who employ them. Students in need of financial assistance are given the opportunity to earn money towards their educational expenses while gaining skills and knowledge that may aid them after graduation. More than 1,700 students participate in these programs each year.

Note on Hours: Students may work no more than 20 hours per week while classes are in session and are capped at 25 hours a week during Summer and Winter breaks. Summer hours begin at the end of the academic year and end August 31st. Departments must adhere to the 25-hour cap to ensure that students remain below the threshold for state benefits eligibility. This keeps Rowan University in compliance with federal and state rules and regulations as well as union rules regarding memberships.

For information on FWS students working over Summer/Winter breaks, please contact the Office of Financial Aid.

Note on Fiscal Year Processing: Fiscal Year 2024 (7/1/2023-6/30/2024) will not open until the end of June. All student assignments will be mass terminated as of June 30th. A new EPAF must be created for all continuing student assignments using July 1st as the effective date.
