Once hired, there are required documents which must be submitted to your supervisor.
A student's FWS wages may be garnished only to pay any costs of attendance that the student owes the school or that will become due and payable during the period of the award. Schools must oppose any garnishment order they receive for any other type of debt; paying FWS funds in such cases would not be in compliance with the Student Financial Assistance (SFA) requirements that funds be used solely for educational purposes.
Students employed under the FWS program have a maximum earnings level which is indicated on the Employment Authorization Form. The supervisors and the students should establish, at the beginning of the work period, a weekly work schedule that will enable each student to work throughout the academic year or summer program based on the student's allocation. Both the supervisor and the student should keep a cumulative record of hours worked and dollars earned.
The Academic Year Earnings Chart (pdf) will assist in determining how many hours per week each student may work throughout the academic year given the student's work-study award amount and/or your department's work-study allocations.
Often, students obtain outside scholarships or other assistance making it necessary for the Office of Financial Aid to adjust the work-study award. If this should occur, the student must notify the Student Employment Coordinator and the supervisor of the award modification.
Although a student may receive a work-study award by the Financial Aid Office, there is no guarantee that the student will earn that amount. Class schedules, department needs, available funding, etc. will determine the actual earnings.
A student may not earn over his/her allocated amount. The supervisor and the student should establish a weekly work schedule that will enable each student to work throughout the academic year, based on the student's allocation.
