STUDENT REHIRE PROCESS
It’s time to have a conversation with your students about their plans to continue working for Summer 2017 and/or Academic Year 2017-2018. Student supervisors received their Student Rehire Spreadsheet on Monday, April 24. As a reminder, those spreadsheets are due back to Human Resources (hr@uwgb.edu) by Friday, May 5, 2017.

GRADUATING OR STUDENTS NOT CONTINUING

The last day of work for graduating seniors and those not returning for the Fall Semester is May 12, 2017. 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 25, 2017 – July 8, 2017): Student Hours Limit of 20 hours for these two weeks

Tuesday, September 5, 2017: First day of classes for the 2017 Fall Semester

SUMMER ACA HOURS LIMITATIONS

As a reminder, the Student Payroll Calendar outlines weekly hour limits.  During summer break, starting with the May B pay period (5/14/17-5/27/17), departments may allow students to work up to 40 hours per week.  As outlined on the calendar, the July A payroll (6/25/17-7/8/17) does have a weekly limit of 20 hours.  Note that the 25-hour per week limit for the academic year resumes with the September A payroll period on 8/20/17.

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.aspPlease 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 2017.  As always, changes in credit load may impact financial aid eligibility.  Summer Work Study will begin on May 14, 2017.
