General Considerations

As much as possible, FWS positions should be meaningful and related to the student’s education. Supervisors should also be as flexible as possible in structuring work hours since each student’s primary purpose is obtaining an education. Students must have a Work-Study offer as part of their financial aid to be hired as a Work-Study employee. Students who drop below half-time, graduate, withdraw, are academically dismissed, are not meeting the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Standards for Financial Aid Applicants, or are otherwise no longer enrolled are no longer eligible for Work-Study. The student’s last day of enrollment is their last day of Work-Study eligibility.
