Student Employment Center

Information for student workers:

  • Federal Work-Study students: The Government Office of Student Federal Aid is providing an allowance for institutions like BW to continue to pay existing Federal Work-Study students through the remote instruction period ending May 8, 2020. Students will be paid based on an average hours estimate from previous weeks established by their supervisor until they return to campus.
  • Non-Federal Work-Study students (all other student employees): Student eligibility to work is at the discretion of the supervisor. Eligible students who can commute to campus for work may do so through the remainder of the spring semester and will continue to be paid accordingly. If students are unable to work because they do not have local access to campus or any other reason, they are excused from their work and will not be paid. Student workers can find guidance and apply for unemployment.
