Work-Study

Work-study is a federal and state-funded, need-based financial aid program designed to provide part-time jobs to full-time students. Work-study is awarded to the students showing the most financial need; income earned is taxable.

How do I apply for Work-Study?

  1. Complete the FAFSA by Feb. 15 each year
  2. Mark "yes" to the question: "Do you want to provide additional information about your enrollment plans?" This will prompt you to check a box if you want to be considered for Work-Study. 
  3. If you are awarded "college work-study or Idaho work-study" accept the award on VandalWeb.

What do I do once I accept my Work-Study award?

  1. Choose a job listed in the Work-study Job Directory and login to VandalWeb.  See link at beginning of the directory. 
  2. First time Work-Study recipients must attend a Work-study Orientation session in August to receive a referral sheet. 
  3. Take your Referral Sheet to the listed supervisor to choose a start date.
  4. Take your identification documents by Human Resources to complete an I9.  
  5. Previous work-study recipients can pick up a referral sheet in our office on or after the first day of the semester. 
  6. To change jobs, submit a Job Change form.

How will I get paid for my work?

  1. Complete and return your Job Referral Sheet to Student Financial Aid Services and submit a timesheet to your supervisor each pay period. Paychecks are issued every two weeks. Please check with your supervisor to determine when you will receive your first paycheck. 
  2. Direct deposit means bi-weekly checks will be automatically deposited into a designated account. Complete a direct deposit form and submit to Human Resources Office located at 415 West 6th Street (next to Taco Time). 
  3. No direct deposit means work-study payroll checks will be mailed to your payroll check address. Update your address using Vandalweb.
