To be considered for Work-Study, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and meet all the deadlines for supporting documentation. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) priority-filing deadline is March 2nd. Once the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office receives your FAFSA information, you will be evaluated for financial need and a financial aid package will be determined. This package may include Federal Work-Study. To initiate the eligibility process for Work-Study, you must first accept your Work-Study award on your student portal. You may then begin to review available on-campus and off-campus positions in Cat PAWS. Once hired, you and your hiring department must complete and submit your FWS Eligibility form. For any questions regarding federal work study please contact the financial aid office at email@example.com.
You may start working after visiting the Student Employment Services Office in SSB231 and completing hire paperwork. You will be notified by Payroll Services within 10 business days to complete other hiring forms online and will be entered into the payroll system once this is accomplished which will allow you to report your hours to the online time reporting system (TRS) at https://trs.ucmerced.edu
You may work up to eighteen (18) hours per week while classes are in session and up to (40) hours per week during break. This limit applies to all your student employment positions if you have another non-FWS job.
The Work-Study award listed on your Work-Study Eligibility form represents the maximum amount you may earn (Federal and employer contributions combined) under the work-study program during the academic year. If you work in an on-campus position, you may continue to work and earn more than you FWS award if your hiring department approves. However any earnings over the award will not be paid under the FWS program and will be charged to the on-campus department you are working for. Any portion of your award that remains unearned at the end of the academic year will be forfeited, as it cannot be transferred to a subsequent award period.
Work-Study earnings are considered taxable income. However, there are several factors determining the amount of your withholding, including the amount earned, marital status, and allowances claimed.
If you work on campus and do not have direct deposit, your checks will be mailed to the address on your new hire paperwork. If you select direct deposit your checks will be directly deposited to your account bi-weekly. If you work a Federal Work Study Job off campus and do not have direct deposit, your checks will be mailed to the address on your new hire paperwork.
