Steps to Finding a FWS Job and Being Placed on Payroll
1. Interested students should see the Receptionist
in the Office of Financial Aid Services for a copy of the
FWS Job Placement Book. This publication lists available FWS
Jobs on campus. Students at Satellite Campuses must call the
FWS Coordinator to make arrangements for the FWS Job Placement
Book to be forwarded to them.
2. Review the positions and mark those jobs
that interest you.
3. Call your Financial Aid Counselor to determine
if you are eligible for the FWS program. If it is determined
that you are eligible for FWS, an FWS award will be included
in your total financial aid package.
4. Make an appointment with the FWS Coordinator.
At your appointment, you will be provided step by step instructions
(Checklist) to complete prior to beginning employment. An
appointment with Employee Health Services for a pre-employment
health screening will be made for you at that time also.
5. Schedule interviews with supervisors. Be
sure to identify yourself as a student who is eligible for
Federal Work Study.
6. After completing the checklist, make another appointment
with the FWS Coordinator. Your appointment should be made
at least three work days following your appointment at Employee
Health Services to allow time for Employee Health Clearance
7. At your second appointment with the FWS
Coordinator, you should submit all paperwork. Failure to complete
all items on the checklist will delay your hire date. At this
time, you will be provided timecards, a list of pay dates
, a memo regarding timecard completion and a copy of your
FWS Contract indicating your official start date. You cannot
begin working until you have been provided with a start date
from the Office of Financial Aid Services. Students who work
in non-authorized periods of employment will not be paid from
Federal Work Study funds. There are no exceptions.
8. Contact your FWS supervisor to establish
a work schedule.
