BGU’s Work-Study Program

Bethany Global University is an official federal work college. All residential students hold jobs on campus in a work-study scholarship program called Practical Training, which offsets tuition costs. 

    BGU is part of a group of distinctive student-centered liberal arts colleges promoting purposeful integration of work, learning, and service, while helping to reduce the cost of education.
    BGU’s Practical Training program offsets tuition costs and is an integral part of the educational experience. Working on campus develops valuable skills and provides relevant work experience students can use after graduation. 



How Practical Training Works

All residential students submit a job application, go through the interview process, and are placed in a role that’s right for them. Students work a set amount of hours each school year, averaging about 15 hours a week.


Working in Practical Training significantly offsets tuition costs. Students earn roughly $14.50 per hour, averaging more than $6,500 per year in aid. Students also gain work experience, build their resume, and grow in professionalism and leadership.
