Work-Study Orientation

All new work-study employees must complete an orientation session before they start working.

In certain departments, supervisors may also require you to attend other types of training related to the job. As long as the training has been approved by the supervisor and the Financial Aid office, the training time can be counted as paid time on your Web Time Entry. This does not include travel time and transportation expenses.
