A Student’s Federal Work-Study Award
An earnings limit is established by the student’s financial aid office for each eligible student. The student and the employer are responsible for monitoring the student’s earnings. The department will receive a bi-weekly report of students that have $1,000.00 or less remaining of their award to assist in monitoring earnings.
Once the student’s FWS award limit is reached, the student will not be paid through FWS unless the award is increased by the financial aid office before the timesheet due date.
Employer FWS Allocation
Students may only be paid through FWS if the employer and the student have not exceeded their allocation/award.
