If you're eligible for financial aid at the University of Houston, your financial aid package will possibly include a work-study component, in which you'll take a part-time job to earn money toward your college expenses (and gain valuable job skills, too!).
Work-study jobs go to students with demonstrated financial need, and most students work 12 to 20 hours each week during the academic year. Two programs handle work-study jobs at UH:
- The Federal College Work-Study Program, which is subsidized by the federal government
- The State of Texas College Work-Study Program, which is subsidized by the State of Texas and restricted to residents of the state of Texas
