Institutional Work Program

This is an institutional work program for students not eligible for federal and state work study. Students who would like to work on campus may qualify for employment through the Institutional Work Program.

To determine eligibility all students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) available in the Financial Aid office.

Minimum requirements for the Institutional Work Program:

Minimum enrollment of six credit hours for fall and spring semesters. Minimum enrollment of three credit hours for the summer semester. Students employed on or off campus are paid $7.40 — $8.50/hour. Check with Career & Employment Services for all employment opportunities.

Students with a Federal Work Study award will be granted an amount each semester, depending on financial need. Students may work and earn up to the total annual amount. Earnings exceeding the annual amount awarded will be charged to the employing department’s institutional fund.

Summer work study is available, depending on availability of funds. Federal Work Study allocations not expended during the fall and spring semesters will be available to eligible students for summer employment through June 30. Earnings beyond June 30 will be charged to the employing department’s institutional fund. Work Authorization Forms from the Financial Aid office are required for summer employment.

Students may work under the Federal Work Study program as long as half-time enrollment is maintained and the annual award is not exceeded. Once annual work awards are met or the student falls below half-time enrollment, employment for that student ends.

Students working under any of the work study programs must follow all rules and regulations set forth by Human Resources for time cards, signatures, hours of work, etc.
