The Workstudy Coordinator will provide your information to supervisors who may be interested. If the supervisor agrees to hire you, they must request you to the Workstudy Coordinator.
Who qualifies for workstudy?
All undergraduate students qualify for workstudy. You must attend a meeting with the Workstudy Coordinator and complete an I-9. You must also complete a W-4 with the Payroll Clerk. All international students must have a social security card in order to qualify.
How do I get paid?
You will be working an average of 5 hrs. /week for 13 weeks for no more than 70 hrs./semester ($500 /semester). After taxes are deducted, the student will earn approx. $400. The music accompanist’s award is less than $500. (Min. wage $7.25 effective on 7/24/09). Workstudy is part of the financial aid package and is first used to pay the balance on a students bill. If the student owes a zero balance, the workstudy earnings may be picked up in a check from the Business Office on the third Thursday of the month. Workstudy paperwork is setup with Financial Aid and Workstudy checks are setup with the Business Office.
