Office of Financial Aid — Work Study Handbook

Work Study Handbook: Supervision

Per federal regulation, all work-study students must be supervised by a permanent staff member of the department or organization. This supervisor must sign all forms, including timesheets. The supervisor must also be present on a regular basis to review the performance of the students.

Employee Records

Students' work-study files are confidential and should not be viewed by anyone other than the individual student or the Office of Financial Aid.

Per University policy, work-study supervisors approached by outside agencies or employers for reference checks may give only the title, wage rate and dates of employment of former work-study employees. Additional information may be given out only if the inquiring agency provides the student's signature to release this information.
