Most students develop relationships on the job with staff members and other students

that last throughout their college career. Campus Employment Some departments have funds to hire students directly from their budgets and do not need to use financial aide. These are very few and far between. Occasionally a department may have funds to subsidize a FWS student once their award is exhausted.

Keep track of Federal Work Study Funds Once a student is hired in the Federal Work Study program, they should review their eligibility funds and track the amount of funds they receive for their work hours. Each pay stub shows the gross earnings for the year and net earnings. It is important to check each pay stub and understand these amounts. Keeping track for Federal Work Study Funds (contd.)

Students may wish to develop an excel spreadsheet to show their total eligibility funds and subtract the gross amount earned each pay period. Gross funds are $$$ received before taxes. Net funds are $$$ received after taxes. Keep your final year end pay stub and add the Gross funds to the new year gross funds When does Work Study End Students work study will end when students

have exhausted their Federal Work Study eligibility funds for the academic year. Students should know how many hours they can work before their funds are exhausted. Students receive pay according to the pay schedule and may direct deposit their check. If not direct deposit, the students checks are mailed to the address on their W-4 form. Work hours Students are not allowed to work more than

17 hours a week during the semester. If a student works more than 5 hours in a day, they are required to take a 30 minute break. Students are not allowed to work when the college is closed and do not receive pay for holidays, sick or vacation time off. Reporting time worked Once a students new or rehire papers are processed, payroll will issue instructions on how to report time worked.

Students need to enter their time worked and have their supervisor approve their time by the due date in order to assure timely reporting of their hours worked. Students should not work more than 17hours in a work week. When your assignment ends When your work study funds are exhausted and your assignment ends, it is important to be evaluated by your supervisor so that

you will understand the value of your work. Evaluations give you the opportunity to know what skills you have and what skills you can improve upon.
