How do I find a student's Federal Work Study?
If a student is awarded Work Study, you can view the award in JobLink. The award amount is updated every two weeks after payroll process.
Do I have to keep track of students' Work Study earnings?
It is recommended to check students’ award amounts regularly. Keep in mind that students with more than one job will use Work Study funds quicker. We recommend asking students if they have more than one position and how many hours they work.
Why is my student hire still 'pending' in JobLink?
A pending status in JobLink can mean several things:
- A student has not completed their I-9. You can see this in JobLink.
- A student has not completed their WTPA or Missed Meal Acknowledgement.
How do students complete an I-9?
- Students complete Part I on their own using newi9.com. Our employer code is 11968. Our employer location is 100000-Student Workers.
- Student must complete Part II with the Student Employment Office (Wallis Hall), the Financial Aid Office or Human Resources at the Eastman School of Music, or with the Human Resources Service Center (Brooks Landing) to verify their documentation.
- The documents must be original. No copies will be accepted.
Can students work through the summer?
Current students can maintain employment through the summer. Graduating students must be hired through HR or Strong Staffing. Students returning as graduate students, must be registered for summer courses to work through student employment.
Please note Federal Work Study is not awarded in the summer.
