These funds are earned by working throughout the academic year; they will not be credited to your student bill unlike other aid programs. Your work study earnings will be processed bi-weekly on the student payroll system. The process to get paid involves completing an e-timesheet and, if you choose, setting up direct deposit. You can do this by logging into your e-services account then clicking on “Financial Aid” then “Direct Deposit Setup.”
