How to Submit a Job Description
Begin by downloading the Federal Work-Study (FWS) Job Description Form. Review the instructions and complete the form in full.
During the academic-year employment term, students’ work hours should be limited to 15–20 hours/week. During breaks, with their supervisor’s approval, and during the summer, students may work full-time if not taking classes.
Hourly Pay/Wage Rates
Guidelines for Establishing Wage Rates
In accordance with Federal Work-Study Guidelines, the following must be considered and taken into effect when establishing wage rates:
- The skills needed to perform the job;
- How much persons with those skills are paid in the local area for doing the same type of job;
- Rates the school would normally pay similar non-FWS employees;
- Any applicable federal, state, or local laws that require a specific wage rate.
It is not acceptable to base the wage rate on the student’s need or any other factor not related to the student’s skills or job description. Please follow the student employment university student job classifications when determining on campus pay rates.
