Federal Work Study Guidelines    
Eligibility
Federal Work Study is available to US citizens and eligible non-citizens who qualify, based on financial need. The amount of Federal Work Study that each student qualifies for will be listed on the financial aid award letter. The amount is usually enough for about 4 hours of work a week throughout the academic year, or about $130 per month, which is an award of $1,000 to $1,200. This may vary according to the pay for that position ie, from 3 hours for $15/hour to 4.6 hours at $7.25/hour.
    
Finding a Job
MUM offers jobs providing opportunities for growth in areas such as administration, community service, arts, sustainable living, recreation and sports, meditation supervision, information systems, digital media, library, bookstore, student activities, and other academic departments such as music and math. Work-study jobs are based on first come, first served availability and therefore are not guaranteed.
 
The Jobs List shows the department, salary, a brief job description and contact information. Jobs are also posted at the Human Resource Office, Room 105 in Henn Mansion.
Students who have financial aid awards are encouraged to look through the posted jobs either in Henn Mansion or on-line, and then come to the Human Resource Office in Henn Mansion to obtain the necessary forms before applying for a job.
 
The student may then contact the departments offering jobs, make an appointment for an interview, and if offered a position, the supervisor signs the top form of the financial aid packet. The student then returns to the Human Resource Office to complete the paperwork and receive a time sheet.
    
Time sheets
The Human Resource Office supplies the time sheets that each student submits to their supervisor by the last day of each month. Subsequently, time sheets are sent to the students’ mailboxes every month at the beginning of the month, or to the student’s off-campus residence. Students who do not have a mailbox on campus are requested to provide stickers with their name and address.
 
Time sheets are issued on a monthly basis and should be used exclusively for that month. Under no circumstances should a student use an outdated time sheet or someone else’s time sheet. Failure to submit time sheets in a timely manner may be grounds for termination from the program.
 
Time sheets are due in the payroll office no later than the first of the next month.
    
Starting Work
Students may not start working until they have submitted their completed paperwork to the Human Resource Office.
 
When the students come with their completed paperwork, they need to bring their bank information (voided check or deposit slip) and driver’s license and social security card OR valid US passport.
    
Earnings
Earnings are paid by the twentieth of the following month. For students who have a local bank account, the first check will be automatically deposited to their bank. Students who have an out of town bank, or do not have a voided check or deposit slip, will need to pick up their first check at the payroll office and subsequent checks will be directly deposited to their personal checking or savings account. The payments earned from Federal Work Study are to be used for books, transportation, and personal expenses incurred as a result of your educational studies.
 
Students must monitor their earnings on a monthly basis to ensure that the total earnings during an academic year do not exceed the amount listed on the financial aid award letter.MUM offers jobs providing opportunities for growth in areas such as administration, community service, arts, sustainable living, recreation and sports, meditation supervision, information systems, digital media, library, bookstore, student activities, and other academic departments such as music and math. Work-study jobs are based on first come, first served availability and therefore are not guaranteed.
