Federal Work Study is not a lump sum grant. Federal Work Study is not money to be paid back like loans.

You are eligible to earn up to the dollar amount listed on your financial package over the course of the academic year. You are not guaranteed this money, nor are you required to earn it all. Work Study funds are received in bi-weekly paychecks based on the hourly wage and hours worked. 

Yes, but all of the funds are split between jobs.

The University recommends undergraduates work no more than 20 hours per week during the academic year. There is no restriction for graduate students and work performed during the summer.

International students are only permitted to work 20 hours per week during the academic year. For more information on working as an international student, please contact ISO.

You can verify that you’ve completed the I-9 by checking your JobLink profile.

If you were hired on a stipend and completed an I-9, this will not be reflected in JobLink. To verify completion, please contact Student Employment and we will help to verify with Human Resources and update your JobLink profile.

  1. Students complete Part I on their own using newi9.com. Our employer code is 11968. Our employer location is 100000-Student Workers.
  2. Once you submit Part I, you’ll get a list of the documentation you must have to complete Part II.
  3. To complete Part II, schedule an appointment with the Student Employment Office (Wallis Hall), the Financial Aid Office at the Eastman School of Music or the School of Medicine and Dentistry, or with the Human Resources Service Center (Brooks Landing).
  4. The documents must be original. No copies will be accepted.

If you are an incoming first-year or transfer student, you will not have access to JobLink until 2 weeks before the semester begins.

If you have a change in status (leave of absence, late registration, non-matriculated) you will not have access to JobLink.  

Please contact Student Employment if you believe your status is incorrect.

For Employers

The University recommends no more than 20 hours per week during the academic year. Up to 40 hours during breaks and summer.

International students are only permitted to work 20 hours per week during the academic year. For more information, please contact ISO.

If a student is awarded Work Study, you can view the award in JobLink in each student’s profile. The award amount is updated every two weeks after payroll process.

It is recommended to check students’ profiles and 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.

A pending status in JobLink can mean several things:

  • A student has not completed their I-9. You can verify this on a student’s profile in JobLink.
  • A student has not completed their WTPA or Missed Meal Acknowledgement. You can verify these in the placements of each position.
  • A student has not submitted a resume. All level II positions and above require a resume (the Student Employment staff verify each resume).

  1. Students complete Part I on their own using newi9.com. Our employer code is 11968. Our employer location is 100000-Student Workers.
  2. Student must complete Part II with the Student Employment Office (Wallis Hall), the Financial Aid Office at the Eastman School of Music or the School of Medicine and Dentistry, or with the Human Resources Service Center (Brooks Landing) to verify their documentation.
  3. The documents must be original. No copies will be accepted.
