Each day upon arriving for work, the student should consult the supervisor for work assignments. Work assignments may also be written or given in advance. Students are not allowed to study or leave the work site without the permission of the supervisor. Supervisors are to see that the student employees have enough to do.
It is illegal to pay the student Federal Work-Study funds if the student is not working. Each division or department is responsible for closely monitoring the use of student time. If a student’s primary assignment is not requiring all of his or her time, the student should temporarily be assigned to another area within the same department/division. Students should clearly understand that they are assigned to an entire department or division, with their work time to be used as efficiently as possible throughout the year.
If there is not adequate work to be done over a period of time, the Financial Aid Office should be advised, either by the student or the supervisor. The student will then be assigned to another department/division.
Work-study positions are a vital and necessary part of the College’s operations and require a commitment (as confirmed by the contract) on the part of each student, in terms of time, energy and dependability. Work assignments are viewed as important employment.
