A completed York College Campus Employment Application must be on file in the Financial Aid Office at York College to receive Federal or Institutional Work-Study. A job will be assigned to the eligible students as funds allow on a first come first serve basis. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the supervisor and arrange a work schedule during the first few days of school. If this is not done before September 10, the student’s work-study will be cancelled and the job will be assigned to someone else. If the student cannot locate the supervisor, please contact the Financial Aid Office for assistance. If you cannot arrange a satisfactory work schedule with your supervisor, you must have your supervisor write to the Financial Aid Office and explain the problem.
This job is like any other hourly job. The student will be paid according to the number of hours worked. (S)he must complete a time sheet every month indicating the number of hours worked that period. The time sheet will be signed and submitted to the Business Office by the supervisor. A check is available the 10th of the month in the Business Office. An I-9 and W-4 must be on file in the Business Office before a paycheck can be printed.
Once work has begun, changes are not allowed. If the student is not satisfied with his/her assignment, the student may terminate working at any time. Please show courtesy by notifying the supervisor ahead of time if situations arise which will prohibit the student from being at work. If the supervisor is not satisfied with job performance, a formal complaint may be filed with the Financial Aid Office explaining the details of the situation. When a complaint is filed, it is our procedure to discuss the problem with both the student and the supervisor. Hopefully, the matter can be resolved. If, however, a second complaint is filed later, your work-study will be cancelled. Once this happens, no new job assignment will be made.
York College will pay students at least the current minimum wage. York College will pay student employees on the tenth of each month for the previous months work. The supervisor will turn in to the Business Office the hours worked for a certain month for their students on the first working day of the subsequent month.
