Student Maximum Earnings Level
Students employed under the Work-Study program have a Maximum Earnings Level, which is indicated on the Off-Campus Authorization Request form.
The supervisor and the student should establish a weekly work schedule that will enable the student to work throughout the academic year or summer program without exceeding his or her Maximum Earnings Level.
Work-Study staff notifies off-campus supervisors by mail when a Work-Study student is within three weeks of exhausting his or her Work-Study award. However, it is the responsibility of both the student and the supervisor to keep track of hours worked and the student’s award balance.
A student who has reached his or her Maximum Earnings Level is no longer eligible to work on the Work-Study program. Hours worked beyond the student’s Work-Study award must be paid in full by the agency. Students may not volunteer for the same position after working in that position on the Work-Study program.
