Student Employment – Federal Work Study Program

Work Study is a federal government funded program, and a student’s eligibility is determined by the Financial Aid Office.  After determining eligibility, the Financial Aid Office provides a list of eligible students to the Student Accounts’ Student Payroll Coordinator. 

In order for work study eligibility to be determined, students must meet the following requirements:
•    Students must complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) applications every year in January as well as request work study through the Student Accounts Office.
•    Students must be recipients of the Pell Grant to be eligible for work study, based on eligibility after completing the FAFSA.
•    Students must have financial need.  The students’ Cost of Attendance (COA) must be greater than their Expected Family Contribution (EFC).  A Financial Aid Administrator cannot award Federal Work Study to a student if that award, when combined with all their other resources, will exceed the student’s financial need.

Due to limited availability for work study (approximately 150 positions each academic year), positions are awarded on a first-come first-served basis with first priority given to continuing work study students.  International students and students who are on “academic probation” do not qualify for Federal Work Study.  Please refer to the Financial Aid section on this Website for additional information.

Departments that wish to retain their work study students for the next academic year must submit requests with the students’ names and ID numbers to the Student Payroll Coordinator before the end of the Spring semester.

Payroll taxes are deducted from the student’s paycheck every month, based on the information provided by the student on their W-4 forms.  The form must be filled out by every work study student before they begin working.  W-4 forms are available on the IRS Website: www.irs.gov.

Student Employment – Work Aid Program
The B- CU Work Aid Program is a program funded by the University.  Students cannot be assigned to the Federal Work Study and B-CU Work Aid Programs simultaneously.

There are a few departments on campus that have allocated funds in their budgets to hire students under work aid.  Departments who have sufficient funds available through their department’s budget may hire work aid students.  In order to hire a work aid student, a department is required to complete an Employment Authorization Form and submit it to the Student Payroll Coordinator for approval.  International students are eligible to be hired for work aid.  Please refer to the Financial Aid section on this Website for additional information.
