Supervisor Information

  • Procedure for Supervisorsplus or minus

    • When a student approaches a supervisor requesting to be considered for a position in his or her department or if a supervisor has a particular student in mind for the position, the supervisor must instruct the student to contact the financial aid office. The student is not permitted to work until he or she is approved by the financial aid office.
    1. There are requirements which must be fulfilled in the financial aid office for Federal Work Study. They are as follows:
        1. FAFSA must be on file 
        2. The student must be eligible for the Federal Work Study Program determined by the FAFSA
        3. An on-line work study application must be filed
        4. An I-9 and W-4 must be completed in the presence of a member of the human resource office with original documents
        5. A student must meet satisfactory academic progress
        6. A student should not be under any holds; financial or academic
    • If the student does not qualify for Federal Work Study, he or she may be placed on University Work Study funds. The student is still required to fulfill requirements 3 thru 6 inclusive.  If the department in question does not have University work study funds, the department head must put in a request in writing to Assistant VP budget & Finance Plan for allocation of these funds.
    • Once all requirements are met, the financial aid office will make the referral to the named department. At this time, the supervisor may go to our supervisors on-line placement form to hire the student in question. The student may begin working at this point.

    If a supervisor or student has any questions concerning these procedures, please feel free to contact the financial aid office at (570) 941-7701 or
