Update on Federal Work Study:
This is an updated message regarding the University’s current response to COVID-19 concerning Federal Work Study.
Based on our current status where it is our intent to hold all undergraduate classes and labs online for the remainder of the spring semester, guidance from the Department of Education is being followed in terms of Federal Work Study (FWS). Beginning March 23 and for the remainder of the spring term, students will not be required to complete work hours. Since students will no longer work their assigned hours on campus or remotely, students will be paid as follows beginning March 23, 2020 through May 1st, 2020:
Students who worked during the current spring term 1 to 36 hours through the end of
February will be paid for seven hours per week, but not to exceed the student’s work-study
award for the term.
Students who worked during the current spring term 37-60 hours through the end of February will be paid for eleven hours per week, but not to exceed the student’s work-study award for the term.
Students who worked during the current spring term more than 60 hours through the end of February will be paid for nineteen hours per week, but not to exceed the student’s work-study award for the term.
Note that Federal Work Study hours worked from March 1 until March 22 will be paid based on actual hours worked.
If additional updates need to be provided, the financial aid office will send another message to your student email.
