Processing Work-Study Hires for the 2018-2019 Aid Year

Departments may now process work-study hires for the 2018-2019 academic year in Core-CT using the UC_TBH_WS template. Please be sure to enter 2019 as the aid year. The Job Effective Date for Fall work-study hires should be no earlier than August 24th, as work-study begins on that date and ends on May 9th for those students with full-year awards. Also, if you are hiring a student for the entire academic year, be sure to select Fall/Spring for the semester. If you use Fall, it will only encumber the fall portion of the students award.
