Students with Federal Work-Study who are interested in pursuing University work for the academic year will be allowed to work remotely, as long as the job tasks can be performed remotely, and there is documented supervision. If you have been hired for the fall semester and are a first-time University employee, click here for the University hiring documents.

Students with Federal Work-Study awards will earn money only if they are employed with the University, based on the hours worked and paid via direct deposit paycheck on a bi-weekly basis. The only way to access funds from a Federal Work-Study award is through earnings for hours worked.
