Federal Work-StudyThree Rivers participates in the Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program, which allows selected eligible students to work between 5 and 19.5 hours per week during semesters. In order to be eligible for work study employment, a student must have financial need, be enrolled in the current semester, and be in good academic standing. Completing the FAFSA is necessary to determine a student's eligibility for FWS.
In order to be selected for employment, an eligible candidate should apply to the office which he or she is interested in working for. There will be a limited number of positions available per semester (a list is maintained below). At the discretion of the office, the applicant may also be required to participate in an interview. Once a candidate has been chosen, the supervisor must notify the Financial Aid Office, which will send the supervisor a Certificate of Eligibility/Acceptance of Hiring form for the student and supervisor to complete, then submit to Human Resources.
All Federal Work Study students are expected to work in accordance with the tasks and schedules set by their supervisors, as well as observe a Confidentiality of Student Records Agreement. If a student withdraws from all classes they must notify their supervisor immediately and terminate employment. Failure perform acceptable work or observe policies will result in loss of employment with the FWS program.
Work-Study students record time worked in myTRCC to submit to their supervisor. Federal Work-Study payroll is processed bi-monthly.
