If I am awarded Work-Study, what is my next step?

Funding is limited! Students may begin working the first day of each semester; or the date the hiring process is completed, whichever date is later. 

Before you can begin work:

Federal Work-Study Authorization Form (obtained by hiring department) must be completed before you begin working. The form must be completed by the hiring department and submitted to the Financial Aid & Scholarship Office located in MSR Suite 100. (Building #27 see map)

First Time Work-Study Employee:

If you are a first time work-study employee that has been hired (not previously employed), a sign-in session with Human Resources is required prior to beginning work. Students will need to bring completed New Hire documents (provided below) and acceptable identification to one of the scheduled Sign-Ins. For more information please visit Human Resources website.  

* If one of the sign-in sessions conflicts with a student's classes,  an appointment may be scheduled online at: https://www.csustan.edu/hr/student-employment/new-student-employee-sign OR by contactting Human Resources Department (MSR 320 Building #27 see map) at (209) 667-3351.
