College Work Study Employment Procedures

It is the student's responsibility to contact the hiring department listed, interview with the department contact, and gain employment. In addition, employing departments may also contact College Work Study applicants for an interview.

Should a student locate a job on campus, the student is required to complete the necessary paperwork in Human Resources. Students are paid biweekly. Once a student has reached his/her award limit, employment may be terminated.
