Timesheets & Getting Paid

Timesheets

In order to receive your paycheck, you must submit a timesheet for each period worked.  To do so, complete the following steps:

  1. Follow the listing of pay periods on the Work-Study pay schedule.
  2. Go to the My Timesheets section of the FWS system.
  3. Create an online timesheet for the corresponding period.
  4. Submit timesheet to supervisor/departmental administrator for approval by the due date on the FWS Pay Schedule.

A full guide to creating and submitting timesheets is available in the Online System Users Guide section.

Your paycheck may be delayed if an incomplete or incorrect timesheet is submitted.
