Please review the instructions for paying student employees, below:
- Paying the student & getting reimbursed
- Dates, hours, and rates
- Students with multiple jobs
- Students under age 18
- Exceeding the work study allocation
- Contacting the student's financial aid office
Students must be paid at least once a month for work performed.
After payment of students, the non-profit agency submits a reimbursement voucher to the Undergraduate Financial Aid Office. The Undergraduate Financial Aid Office completes the appropriate paperwork for both undergraduate and graduate students, and Duke's payroll services sends reimbursement to the non-profit agency.
The non-profit agency can only be reimbursed for the percentage of total earnings covered by work study funding.
- Federal Work Study: 90% reimbursement
- Duke Work Study: 50% reimbursement
Reimbursement requests for earnings in excess of the total work study earnings allocation will not be processed.
Work study allocations must fall within given dates. These dates vary between terms and school, and are provided on the Work Study Verification Form. The student's financial aid office provides this Work Study Verification Form to the student and the student provides it to the hiring department. All (100%) of student wages earned outside of the allocation dates will be deducted from the department's cost center.
Please note: All requests for reimbursements for work performed between July 1, 2010, and June 30, 2011, must be submitted to the Undergraduate Financial Aid Office by July 15, 2011. The Undergraduate Financial Aid Office processes these requests for all students, including graduate students.
It is critical that a student's campus employment be a manageable part of his/her academic career, not an overwhelming experience. Please discuss with your student employees the number of hours they feel comfortable working given all other obligations of their time. We highly recommended that students not be required to work the maximum number of hours each week.
