 Student Responsibilities


  1. Federal Work-Study and Institutional Student Employment are part-time jobs; do not expect to study during your scheduled work hours, unless allowed to do so.

  2. Be consistently dependable. Be prompt, and work the hours for which you have been scheduled.

  3. If you must be late or absent from work, notify your supervisor prior to work time.

  4. Federal Work-Study and Institutional Student Employment employees must maintain part-time enrollment.  If you drop below half-time, withdraw, or graduate, contact the Office of Student Financial Aid.

  5. A Federal Work-Study award does not guarantee employment.  You must interview with prospective employers and “sell” yourself.  Departments are not obligated to re-hire you for a following academic year.

  6. When you are hired by the department, complete payroll forms, along with Section I on the I-9 Employment Verification Eligibility Form, and the Direct Deposit Authorization and W-4 Form.  Then have the department complete the Federal Work-Study approval form and return all forms to the Office of Student Financial Aid immediately.  You cannot begin work until it has been submitted and approved by the Office of Student Financial Aid.

  7. If you have problems or grievances with your work, talk with your supervisor.  If it cannot be resolved, discuss it with the department head.

  8. Excessive tardiness, absenteeism, or failure to perform assigned duties are grounds for termination.  Give the job your best effort!  Your employer’s evaluation becomes a part of your file and may be used as a future job reference.
