Work Study Overview
Students with work study awards are seen as a University resource and are allocated to departments as are other resources. Thus, work study students are allocated by deans/vice presidents based on justified need.
Each dean/vice president has an allocation pool of work study students that is proportional to the number of work study students employed in his/her college or division in past years. Your dean/vice president will discuss with you the manner in which you will express your need for work study students for the fall and spring semesters. The allocation to departments is expressed in terms of number of students with work study awards—not dollars or hours of work.
