Federal Work Study Information

Important information for departments employing Federal Work Study Students!

If you are employing a student that will be graduating in May, please remember that their  last day to work as a student employee will be Thursday, May 14, 2015. Please submit a termination contract to the Career Center prior to Thursday, May 14, 2015 using the electronic hiring form that can be found on My Charleston under the My Forms or Employee tab.  It is the responsibility of the Hiring Department to terminate all contracts of Graduating Student Employees.  If you plan to have them work in your department after they graduate, please use the Temporary Employee hiring process through Human Resources.  Before submitting a termination or a temporary appointment for your graduating senior please make sure the student employee will not be taking any additional classes for credit hours after the posted graduation date. If so please speak to Student Employment before termination or submitting a temporary appointment.
