Fall Deadline to Secure a Work-Study Job

The deadline for students to secure a work-study position is Friday, September 20th. The deadline for employers to process the work-study hires in CORE-CT is September 27th.

Processing Work-Study Hires for the 2019-2020 Aid Year

Departments may now process work-study hires for the 2019-2020 academic year in Core-CT using the UC_TBH_WS template. Please be sure to enter 2020 as the aid year. The Job Effective Date for Fall work-study hires should be no earlier than August 23rd, as work-study begins on that date and ends on May 7th 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.

Minimum Wage to Increase to $11.00 on October 1st

The Governor has signed legislation that will gradually increase the minimum hourly wage in Connecticut to $15.00 over the next several years. The Student Labor/Work-Study Pay Scales have been adjusted to coincide with that change. The hourly rate for any student whose active payroll authorization is not at the minimum of the new pay class will be systematically increased.

The new pay scales can be found in the employment guide.
