Since we are discouraging students from coming to campus, federal work studies will be unable to continue working during this period. We realize that students rely on the income from their work study jobs, and the loss of this form of financial aid can be devastating. As a result, OSUIT will continue to pay you your Federal Work Study wages for your regularly scheduled hours (typically 15 hrs per week) for the online instructional period of March 23 through the end of the spring term. Payments beyond this date will be determined as future events unfold. Those student workers who are “institutional work studies” will be determined by the unit employing them and should consult with their supervisor for guidance.
