College Work Study Students

College Work Study Students

College Work Study Students are employed and paid on a separate College Work Study payroll on an hourly basis for hours worked and reported on an approved time sheet. Funding to support this program comes from federal grants and required "matching" funds provided by the campus.

Only students meeting federal Work Study financial need and enrollment criteria are eligible for employment in a College Work Study job.

Each campus makes its own college Work Study awards and creates college Work Study jobs but the payroll is processed with a university-wide system with paychecks being issued by the Office of the State Comptroller.

College Work Study Students are eligible to participate in the NYS Employees' Retirement System and must be given that opportunity. The only other fringe benefit that they are eligible for is Worker's Compensation. College Work Study student assistants are non-union titles.
