New Training Available on Federal Work Study for Finance

This 30-minute course reviews the Federal Work Study program from a finance perspective. The Federal Work Study program provides job opportunities for eligible students with financial need who are enrolled at least half time, allowing them to earn money to help pay indirect education expenses.

The Student Financial Aid office helps subsidize the cost of hiring students who have Federal Work Study awards. In other words, when you hire a Federal Work Study student position the department can get the cost of the student’s salaries and associated expenses subsidized if not fully covered. Non-Revenue Generating Units receive FULL subsidy for eligible wages and benefits. Revenue Generating Units receive 75% of the student’s eligible wages subsidized.

This training includes explanations of the processes for Federal Work Study, and the related costing allocation, central allocation and reconciliation of the GL. The training will also review reports that may assist with the Federal Work Study process.
