    Federal Work-Study (FWS)

    Federal Work-Study (FWS) is funded by the government and must be counted as financial aid and placed on your award letter. FWS is based on financial need. Being awarded FWS does not guarantee you a position. Students are required to secure their own employment and can work up to 15 hours per week. Your earnings are paid directly to you and are not deducted from your bill.

    Students can also search for on-campus positions through Career Service's database at http://www.collegecentral.com/stvincent.

    Saint Vincent College Monthly Payment Plan

    Saint Vincent College offers a deferred payment plan that provides you with flexibility and time to meet your financial obligation. The monthly payment plan is administered by the Business Office at Saint Vincent College. The payment plan allows you to spread out your payments over the academic year while you are enrolled in classes, rather than making payment-in-full at the start of each semester. The plan is typically spread over 10 months starting in July.

    You should receive information on the Payment Plan at orientation. If you select this option, there is a $40 processing fee due with your first payment, but no interest accrues and no additional fees are charged if paying with a credit card.
