How do I Extend a Work Study Student?


A work study assignment is a temporary position that has a defined end date depending on the student's financial aid award. Most awards are for the academic year (fall/spring), but some students may have spring only, fall only, or summer awards.  Awards for the full academic year normally end on the last day of spring classes however, students may be administratively terminated for eligibility reasons or when they exhaust their work study award.

A work study assignment may be extended as long as the student has a current work study award and meets eligibility requirements.  Extension may be used for currently employed students or students with a break of employment of three (3) months or less.  Students with a break of greater than three (3) months must be hired through UNMJobs.
