Work-Study Program
EligibilityDakota Wesleyan’s work-study program is available to students who are granted a work-study award on their financial aid letter. To determine if you are eligible for the work-study program, contact the financial aid office.

The work-study program at Dakota Wesleyan is designed to provide convenient employment opportunities to our students with demonstrated financial need. Rather than a “dead-end job,” DWU work-study positions serve as training experiences allowing students the opportunity to build upon their internal resources and learn valuable career skills they can utilize after college. This training also establishes meaningful relationships between student-workers and their supervisors, helping each student develop as both an individual and employee and making their time at Dakota Wesleyan more fulfilling.

Students who work a moderate number of hours per week on campus are proven to perform better academically. In addition, this financial aid award is not a loan you must pay back; you earn it, and use it as you see fit. The work-study program also offers a convenient employment opportunity: it allows you to work on campus, often between classes and with your fellow students.
