Student work-study begins Aug. 16

The 2021-22 work-study program will begin the week before classes start. Students must demonstrate financial need on the FAFSA to be eligible; work-study eligibility is viewable in Workday. Questions may be directed to the student employment center, 294-JOBS, or studentjobs@iastate.edu. Below are a few reminders:

  • Federal and institutional funds will cover 60% of the earnings for eligible students, and the hiring department is responsible for 40%.
  • A student must be in the work-study job profile in Workday to earn work-study funding. 
  • Job aids in the human resources Knowledge Base portal provide guidance for completing Workday transactions. 
  • A new work-study calendar helps departments manage deadlines and required reports.
