Payroll and Earnings
Work-study students are paid according to the college’s bi-weekly payroll schedule. Students are paid via check or may set up direct deposit; forms are available at the college’s Payroll Office.
Students can only work until their work-study funds run out for a given semester. Earnings will be monitored by the supervisor. The Financial Aid Office will be responsible for monitoring students’ eligibility for funds. Students can only work up to 20 hours per week during the fall and spring semester and up to 29 hours per week during summer and winter intercessions, if eligible and if funding is available. When the work-study award runs out for a given student, on-campus supervisors may consider using discretionary funds for their department.
Once a student has been hired, the supervisor must inform the Financial Aid Office through email. If the student is eligible, the student is awarded based upon available funding. The student must also complete two Work Study packets: one from the Financial Aid Office and the other from Human Resources. HR will also request that the student provides two forms of identification. Some Work Study positions also require background checks prior to the student starting employment.
Student workers must complete a weekly timesheet and have it signed by their direct supervisor. Supervisors and students must keep a copy of each timesheet for their records. The student will then submit the original timesheet to the Financial Aid Office.
