Work Study is a need-based employment funded by the Federal Work Study program. Awards are based on a financial need calculation using the FAFSA. Students must maintain full time enrollment to be eligible for work study. Work study awards are generally $1200-$2000 per year with the average student working 6-10 hours per week. The work study award is not a guarantee of employment.
Students receive a listing of work study positions. It is the responsibility of the student to set up a meeting with the supervisor for a job interview. The supervisor will contact the Financial Aid Office with an offer to hire. The Financial Aid Office will send an authorization form to the supervisor once all requirements for employment are completed. Students must provide two forms of state/federal ID and complete tax withholding paperwork with the HR office before authorization is completed.
Students are paid on the 15th of each month and time cards are due to HR by the last day of the month. Time cards are available in the campus mail room.
