Federal Work Study: Information

Federal work study funds are earned.

Your funds are paid with the regular payroll based on the number of hours you and your supervisor certify that you worked during the pay period (remember that you cannot work over the number of hours for which you are eligible).  In order to receive your Federal Work Study funds, you must work - work study is just like any other job, you must perform the duties assigned to you in order to earn your pay.

Federal Work Study positions are not guaranteed.

There may be more students eligible for Federal Work Study positions than there are positions available.  Financial Aid will make every effort to assist a student in locating a position but the final decision is made by the individual supervisors.

It may be helpful to talk to your teachers and advisor.

Teachers and advisors might be interested in hiring you for a position in their department (if the department has been approved for a position through the Federal Work Study program).

What happens if I am hired by a department?

A Federal Work Study Assignment form and a Steps for Hiring form are sent to the department supervisor to be completed by the student and the supervisor and both forms must be returned to the Financial Aid office. Both forms will then be sent to the Human Resources office to determine required paperwork and orientation for employment. Make sure you give a working phone number and/or email address that you can be reached for setting up your meeting with Human Resources.

What if this is my first job with ASU-Beebe?

Once your Federal Work Study Assignment form and your Steps for Hiring form have been returned and submitted to Human Resources, you will receive contact from Human Resources to schedule your orientation which is required for hiring.

Currently the Human Resources orientation hours for work study students are Mondays at 2 p.m. and Tuesday or Wednesday at 9 a.m.

Upon completion of this process with Human Resources, the Steps for Hiring form will be completed by Human Resources and sent to your Federal Work Study supervisor. This will clear the student to begin work. Do NOT begin working until your supervisor has received clearance from Human Resources.
