Federal Work-Study/Student Employment
Who is eligible to work on campus?
- Students who are registered in an undergraduate degree program on a full-time basis.
- Students who have federal work-study as part of a financial aid award.
- Students without federal work-study may seek employment beginning the fourth week of Fall Semester.
How do I find a job on campus?
- Contact a department of interest to you, or
- Check with the Student Employment Center on the second floor of the Bonds Administration Building (Room 213) or access the SEC Web page www.bw.edu/resources/sec/seccampusjoblistings/.
What paperwork do I need to complete with the SEC before I can begin work?
- You need to complete an I-9 form, a W-4, the Ohio School District Tax Form and a direct deposit form.
How many hours per week am I allowed to work?
- The hours of work you are permitted to be employed on campus are determined by the dollar amount of your federal work-study award if it is included as part of your financial aid award.
$2,400 / 30 weeks in the academic year / pay rate ($7.80) = 10.2 hours of work per week.
Non-work-study students are not to work more than 10 hours per week and cannot apply for campus employment until after the fourth week of the start of the fall semester.
How much will I be paid?
- The majority of jobs on campus pay the Ohio minimum wage. Your supervisor will inform you if your position is one that pays above minimum wage.
How do I get paid?
- Students are paid every two weeks. Payday is on Fridays.
- Via direct deposit to your BW student billing account or personal bank account.
