Financial Aid and Employment

Although awards are not based on financial need, the award amount will be incorporated into the aid packages of those participants who receive need-based financial aid at Ohio Wesleyan.  A federal work-study award may be adjusted or a loan may be reduced or replaced. Treatment varies depending on the individual financial aid packages. Applicants should review their circumstances with a financial aid officer.

Financial Compensation

  • Updated for 2024-2025: Positions can be for 1 semester only or for the full academic year. StAP positions are for a maximum of six hours per week and will be paid $11.50 per hour for 15 weeks per academic semester. Payment is made on a bi-weekly basis.

In fairness to all, late applications will not be accepted under any circumstances
