Federal Work-Study Student Obligations
Students are expected to perform their work assignments professionally and responsibly.
They are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with their responsibilities.
Students who fail to perform satisfactorily will be removed from their work assignment
and from the Federal Work-Study program. Such students will forfeit their remaining Federal
Work-Study award. A student who accepts a Federal Work-Study assignment agrees to:
- remain in the job for the duration of the assigned period (you may not change positions during the academic year),
- give regular and efficient performance on the job
- be punctual and dependable (reporting for work each day at the scheduled time),
- notify supervisor, in advance, when illness or other circumstances prevent attendance
- understand that all employee expectations, policies, and procedures apply to Work
Study employees equally,
- give adequate notice to both the supervisor and the Financial Aid and Scholarship
Office when terminating Work Study assignment, and
- notify the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office immediately if completely withdrawing.
A supervisor may terminate a Work Study student for a breach of behavior, inadequate
performance, or any other seriously unsatisfactory situation. If a supervisor wishes
to terminate a student, he or she must present the reasons for dismissal to Human
Resources. The Financial Aid and Scholarships Office may terminate a student for the following
- completely withdrawing or graduating from Utah Valley University (no longer a student
enrolled at Utah Valley University),
- failure to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress standards,
- exceeding award limits and/or Cost of Attendance.
