​​​The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program is a need-based financial aid program. It provides funds that students earn through part-time employment to help pay the costs of their educational expenses.

Note: Although an FWS award will appear on your award letter, funds must be earned. Funds earned are paid directly to you, monthly, and are not credited to your student account.

Texas College Work-Study

Texas College Work-Study is similar to Federal Work-Study but is funded by state money. Students ineligible for federal financial aid, such as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients, may apply.

Other Work Opportunities

Dallas College also provides a limited number of on-campus, part-time employment opportunities for students who do not demonstrate financial need. Your campus Career Center often has information on available job openings for students off-campus.
