Federal Work Study updated for maximum hours allocated

Beginning spring 2024 with pay period two (Dec. 24, 2023-Jan. 6, 2024), students employed in a Federal Work Study position will now be allowed to work up to 30 hours per week (60 hours per pay period) while classes are in session.

With the change in maximum hours, the hope is to increase on-campus employment opportunities for students while providing additional financial assistance, valuable work experiences and enhancing educational experiences at Wichita State.

All other eligibility requirements for Federal Work Study employment remain in effect.
