Federal Work Study: Information for you
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). To receive your Federal Work Study funds you must work. Work Study is just like any other job, you must perform the duties assigned 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 FWS Assignment is sent to the department supervisor to be completed by the student and the supervisor and it must be returned to the Financial Aid Office. It will then be sent to the Human Resources Office to determine required paperwork and orientation for employment.
What if this is my first job with ASU-Beebe?
Once you have completed your FWS Assignment form with your hired department, you will need to contact the Human Resources Office to set up a time to do paperwork and orientation prior to beginning your position.
Currently the hours for work study students is Monday-Wednesdays-Fridays from 3-5pm. Upon completion of this process with Human Resources, a notice will be sent to your FWS supervisor that you have been cleared to go to work. You should not begin work until your supervisor has received clearance from HR.
