How do I get a Workstudy Job?

You must be requested by a Workstudy Supervisor or you may submit a current resume' to the Workstudy Coordinator. 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 New Workstudy Orientation 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 paid on the third Thursday of each month for time worked according to the Workstudy Payroll Schedule. Most students work an average of 5 hours per week for 13 weeks, for no more than 70 hours per semester at $7.25 /hour (based on minimum wage effective 7/24/09). If all 70 hours are worked within the semester, you will earn $400 after taxes ($500 gross). The music accompanist award may be less.

If you would like your Workstudy earnings to be applied to your NGU student account, you must complete a NGU STUDENT PAYROLL (Workstudy) DEDUCTION AUTHORIZATION FORM and submit it to the Workstudy Coordinator in the Financial Aid Office.

Workstudy paperwork (I-9) must be on file with the Financial Aid Office, and a W-4 must be on file with the Payroll Clerk in the Business Office before you begin Workstudy.
