Payroll & Direct Deposit
Please note that your work study award will be directly deposited bi-weekly (every other Wednesday) into a bank account of your choice. Your earnings will not be credited to your University account. Families which expect students to use portions of their award to pay University expenses must make the appropriate arrangements.
You and your employer should discuss your work and class schedule before you are hired each semester. Students are not permitted to work in a work study position during scheduled class time. You need to balance your class schedule and commitments with the needs and demands of the office. To calculate the number of hours you should work each week use this formula:
Semester Award Amount ÷ Hourly Pay ÷ 15 Weeks = Average Hours per Week
