Federal work study students must be paid the federally mandated minimum hourly rate as outlined above and cannot be paid a flat rate of pay/stipend. Federal regulations require being able to document an hourly wage rate. The rate of pay is established at the time the position is offered and the student accepts the position. The hiring supervisor will provide the pay rate to Payroll for onboarding the student. All time will be maintained using the College’s electronic timesheet software. Students are responsible for recording time and supervisors are expected to submit timesheet approvals in accordance with the payroll calendar. If you have questions about paying federal work study students, or any other student payroll issues, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
