Scheduling and Wages
To ensure that school remains the top priority, your on-campus employment is subject to a few regulations:
- You cannot work more than 8 hours in one day.
- You cannot work more than 20 hours in one week.
- You cannot be paid for working more than one job at a given time. (For example, grading homework while watching the circulation desk at the library.)
- You cannot work during hours you are scheduled to be in classes.
- You cannot work six or seven consecutive days in a workweek.
If you were awarded Federal Work-Study (FWS), it is important to keep track of the number of hours you work. Over the school year, you may not earn more than your maximum earning limit as reflected on your Financial Aid Award Package. Once you earn the amount you were awarded, you must stop working under FWS immediately. If you work for more than one department, you must coordinate your hours to ensure you do not go over the limit.
If you want to continue working after exceeding your award amount, you must contact the Office of Financial Aid to determine if you are eligible for additional FWS funds. If you earn more than your FWS allocation, the extra amount you earned may be deducted from your other financial aid, including scholarships.
