Important Update for Work Study Supervisors

As we approach the beginning of the fall semester, please be mindful of the important information below concerning work study jobs.  Questions about student employment may be directed to Jean Eckert, our Student Employment Supervisor,  at ext. 4916 or jean.eckert@wilkes.edu.  Jean is also available to discuss Work Study changes at your departmental or at individual meetings.

The website has been updated for easier navigation to Work Study information.

Go to www.wilkes.edu/ studentworkstudyjobs to view:

  • Current  Job Openings for Students
  • Student Application Procedures
  • Student Work Study Job Forms (Application & New Hire Forms) *
  • Supervisor Job Description / Job Posting Template

Students can also go directly to www.wilkes.edu/workstudyforms to access the application and new hire forms.  Applications and new hire forms are also available in the Human Resources office.

Quick Link to “Student Work Study Jobs” has also been added to the Wilkes University homepage.

There is only ONE APPLICATION which can be used for either Federal or Institutional Work Study jobs.

Students are permitted to work a maximum of 2 jobs per term.  Maximum work hours per week during the school term is 20 hours (30 hours for the summer term 05/13/18 – 06/30/18).

Student work CANNOT occur during class time.

Students CANNOT begin working until their paperwork is processed and approved and a work authorization email is received from the Student Employment Supervisor.  Both the student and the supervisor will receive the email authorization.

Federal Work Study Funds are no longer being allocated by Organization.  Rather, the Federal Work Study budget will be managed by the Student Employment Supervisor and allocations will be made based on requests, needs, and student availability.  The Federal Work Study ORG Code 902 has been preprinted on the student application and applies to all Federal Work Study.

Student applications and new hire paperwork can be delivered to Jean Eckert, Student Employment Supervisor, in the Human Resources Office, 10 East South Street, Suite A, between the hours of 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.
