STUDENT REHIRE PROCESS
It’s time to have a conversation with your students about their plans to continue working for Summer 2021 and/or Academic Year 2021-2022. Student supervisors will be receiving emails with current student appointments in late-April and will need to provide updated information to our office.
GRADUATING OR STUDENTS NOT CONTINUING
The last day of work for graduating seniors and those not returning for the Fall Semester is May 14, 2021. This applies to all student employees, work study, or regular. If your student employee is graduating or will no longer be enrolled, you may have the option to hire them as a University Staff Temporary (UST) employee. All UST requests have to be approved by leadership before hire. Please contact Human Resources with any questions about this process.
If your student employee is graduating, HR will end their appointment. If your student employee is not returning for any reason besides graduation or their position is changing, please complete a Student Hourly Employment Form, select the appropriate action from the top dropdown (row 6), and complete the necessary information.
OTHER IMPORTANT DATES
July A Pay Period (June 20, 2021 – July 3, 2021): Student Hours Limit of 20 hours for these two weeks
Thursday, September 2, 2021: First day of classes for the 2021 Fall Semester
SUMMER ACA HOURS LIMITATIONS
As a reminder, the Student Payroll Calendar outlines weekly hour limits. During summer break, starting on 5/16/21, departments may allow students to work up to 40 hours per week. As outlined on the calendar, the July A payroll (6/20/21-7/3/21) does have a weekly limit of 20 hours. Note that the 25-hour per week limit for the academic year resumes with the August B payroll period on 8/22/21.
FEDERAL WORK STUDY (FWS) BALANCE REPORTS
These reports are sent bi-weekly via email to students with an FWS award. This email contains FWS amounts and balances. Ask your FWS student employee(s) to provide you with these emails as a way to monitor award balances. Monitoring FWS balances will assist you when scheduling hours and help avoid exceeding a student’s FWS award.
SUMMER WORK STUDY
Limited Work Study funding is available for students that complete a summer financial aid application at www.uwgb.edu/financial-aid/forms/summer.asp. Please note: Students do not need to be enrolled in summer courses to be eligible for Work Study funds; however, students must maintain adequate enrollment for Fall 2021. As always, changes in credit load may impact financial aid eligibility. Summer Work Study will begin on May 23, 2021.
ADVERTISING OPEN STUDENT POSITIONS
Open positions should be posted in Handshake. There is an Employer Help Center that can address many questions you may have about using the system. Please contact the Student Employment Office (email@example.com) with any questions.
EARNINGS STATEMENTS & W-2 FORM
Earnings statements are available to all current student employees through access to the My UWGB Portal at http://my.uwgb.edu and can be accessed at any time, from any computer that has an internet connection. To login, the student will need to select UW-Green Bay, and then enter their UW-Green Bay user ID and password. Access to the portal is tied to employment, thus, if employment ends, so will access to the portal.
2021 W-2 Forms will be sent to the student’s home address, and a copy will be available in the portal at the end of January 2022. Please have your students review their personal information on the portal. If the address listed is incorrect, please have your student change it in the portal. If you need further assistance, notify firstname.lastname@example.org before the end of the year.
