Frequently Asked Questions about Federal Work Study

What is the Federal Work Study Program?

The Federal Work Study Program is a need-based employment program subsidized by the federal government that allows students to earn a portion of their educational expenses through a meaningful student employment program.

How much will I be paid?

The current work-study pay rate is $10.00 per hour and the current work-ship pay rate is $8.00 per hour.

How and when will I get paid?

Students are required to submit a timesheet to their supervisor at the end of each month. Timesheets must be submitted on the last working day of the month. Your monthly earnings will then be applied to your student account or direct deposited to your bank account.

Where can I learn how to complete my timesheet?

our Work-Study Supervisor should explain how to complete your timesheet. However, you may also ask someone in the Financial Aid Office for assistance.

How much can I earn?

Students can only earn the amount they accepted on their financial aid award package. For example, if the Federal Work Study award was $2,880, students can only earn $1,440 for the fall semester and $1,440 for the spring semester.

How many hours will I need to work to earn the amount I have been awarded?

Students will work an average of 10-20 hours per week to earn the full award of $2,880. Working hours may not be logged during class times. If class is cancelled and you work documentation must be submitted.

How many hours can I work each week?

Students can only work a maximum of 20 hours per week while school is in session, or until they reach their award for the semester of $1,440. Students may work during fall and spring breaks if they are behind on their hours and their supervisor approves the adjusted schedule. Working hours may not be logged during class times. If class is cancelled and you work documentation must be submitted.

How do I know where I will be working?

Your supervisor should contact you with position information before classes begin. However, students should reach out to their Supervisor if they do not hear from them before the first week of classes.

Can I work in more than one Student Employment position at the same time?

No, you may only work in one position at a time.

Will my Federal Work Study earnings be taxed?

Yes, federal, state and local taxes will be withheld each pay period based on the withholding allowance you submit on the W-4 and K-4 forms.

How do I complete my tax forms?

If students are unsure of how to complete the I-9, W-4, and K-4 forms, there are how-to videos listed above, or they can consult with a parent or their tax preparer.

When will I complete the paperwork to be paid?

Students will need to complete their paperwork before attending the Job Fair in August. If you are not attending the Job Fair, paperwork must be completed before students can begin working. Bring completed paperwork and two original forms of government-issued ID to the Office of Financial Aid to process. All paperwork is listed above under “Documents for Work-Study Students to Complete.

Will I receive tax documents (Form W-2) at the end of the year?

Yes. W-2’s will be available electronically through TigerNet if students sign up to receive an electronic W-2. If they did not choose to receive it electronically, Human Resources will mail the W-2.

What is the last date a student can work?

The last day a student can work is the last day of finals week each semester.

Am I automatically assigned to the Federal Work Study program every year?

No, students are re-evaluated every year based on FAFSA information and prior year performance.
