Steps to Work Study Employment

STEP  1. Selecting your Job

Review the Student – Work Study job listings at You will find listings for on-campus jobs, off-campus jobs, and graduate student jobs. Work study positions are available for several offices and organizations, including community service. Students who have work study awards may choose to work with one of our community work study partners, providing services to assist in the non-profit community.

STEP  2. Interviews

Interested departments and community service organizations will contact you to schedule interviews. Work study interviews are like any other job interview; you should show up prepared to discuss your qualifications and ready to demonstrate that you are the best candidate for the position. 

STEP  3. Hiring Process

Print a copy of your Detailed Class Schedule from myWings and take them with you to your interview. If you are a new employee to the UNF payroll, you will need to have your Social Security card and, for eligible non-citizen, your alien registration card for Human Resources and payroll processing.

Before you may start working, your employer will submit a Personnel Action Form to the Work Study Coordinator in One Stop Student Services. One Stop will work with Human Resources to authorize your employment and establish a payroll record for you. You may not begin working until your supervisor has received approval and the Work Study tracking form from the Work Study Coordinator.

STEP 4. Begin Working, Setup Direct Deposit and Timesheet

Make sure your supervisor gives you instructions on how to set-up your direct deposit of your paycheck and how to process your timesheet to get paid. This is done through the myWings Employee Self Service and your department should give you the instructions.
*Remember, the deadline to accept your FWS award is the second week of the Fall semester and the deadline to find a job is the fourth week of the semester. Students who do not complete these steps by the deadlines will see their Fall and Spring Federal Work Study awards cancelled.
