2019-2020 Spring Work Study Request Reminder

The Office of Financial Aid reminds all campus departments to please submit requests for spring 2020 Work-Study positions.

The Office of Financial Aid would like to remind all campus departments to please submit requests for the Work-Study Program positions in your department for the 2019-20 spring term. The request form is located on the MyOleMiss portal. After logging in with your user name and password, access the “Employee” tab, then “Students” subcategory, then select “Work-Study Request” from the bullet list to the left of the screen.

Hiring a Work-Study student offers a variety of opportunities for your department as well as for the student. To aid you in your search for a Work-Study student, we strongly encourage you to ask students to prepare and bring a resume for their interview with you. After you have filled your position, simply send an email to to close it.

Please be aware that the rate of pay for Work-Study students is $7.40 per hour.  For your budget planning purposes, this translates to a departmental share of $1.85 per hour (25% of $7.40) with the balance covered by federal funds.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dana Requet, at 915-6506 or email,
