SSM 306–05: Federal Work-Study Program Award Limit/Termination of Employment
To list the conditions governing the employment and termination of Federal Work-Study Program student employees
34 Code of Federal Regulations § 675
Financial Aid and Scholarship Services/Student Employment
A student employee receiving funding through the Federal Work-Study Program (FWSP) may work throughout the specific award period unless:
The student must stop working at the end of the award period or when the award limit has been reached, whichever occurs first. Payment from the FWSP cannot be made for hours worked after that time. Any additional hours worked must be paid from the hiring unit’s funds.
FWSP funding that the student was eligible to receive but did not earn during the specific award period cannot be transferred to the next academic year.
The employing unit has primary responsibility for monitoring the student’s FWSP earnings to verify that the award limit is not exceeded.
