  • Offered to students for the entire academic year. The total amount offered is split between the fall and spring semesters.
  • Calculate the total number of hours per semester a student may work to earn his/her full work-study award using the formula:
    Work-Study Award ÷ Pay Rate = Total Hours

Pre-Employment Paperwork

At the Storrs Campus, Section 2 of the I-9 form is certified by the individual on-campus employers/departments. Some of the Regional Campuses may have a central location & contact person to assist with completion of the forms. Students being hired at a regional campus should contact their supervisor for guidance.
