Fall 2020 Work Study Job Postings Request

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

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 Fall 2020 term. We understand these are uncertain times and the viability of having a student worker in your department may not be feasible at this fall. If you plan to have a work study student and need our office to advertise for you, please submit the request as soon as possible as students are eagerly looking for jobs on campus. The request form is located on the MyOleMiss portal. After logging in with your user name and password, access the “Employee” tab, then “Academics and Student Information” subcategory, then select “Work-Study Request” from the bullet list. 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,
