Supervisors can pay students more than minimum wage however, it is recommended that you do not pay students more than $10 an hour to ensure that they do not exhaust their work-study funds too quickly unless otherwise funded via budget.
We recommend that students work between 10-12 hours a week, but they cannot work more than 15 hours a week. Working too many hours is something that can be a federal audit finding. Also, we recommend that students work 10-12 hours a week to ensure that their work funds last throughout the academic year.
If a student receives a raise in pay greater than minimum wage, it could affect how many hours or how long they can work. If the student receives a wage but continues to work the same number of hours per week, they could exhaust their work-study funds quicker. Supervisors are encouraged to reach out to the Financial Aid Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how a raise could affect your student worker’s hours.
The deadline for a student to submit their FASFA to secure their financial aid for the upcoming school year is due June 30. Students should follow up with the Financial Aid office after they submit this request or if they need any assistance.
