UTEP employs students in many areas on campus as regular student employees or federal work-study. To be eligible, you must be currently enrolled in (and regularly attending) at least one class for the current quarter. For each employment position, there is an hourly wage rate starting a minimum wage. Students cannot work more than 19 hours/week or more than 8 hours/day. For current positions go to www.utep.edu/careers
. Students can work up to 40 hours a week during holiday breaks (Spring Break, December Holiday Break etc.) when there is no school session (regardless if the student is enrolled or not for the next term) and summer. Please be aware that work the 40 hours over a holiday break or summer session may use up the student's work study allocation before the end of their assignment period. This would mean that the student would not
be able to continue working unless they are "rehired" by the department as an "hourly" employee. Hourly employees must be paid entirely out of a department's wage account. Note: these departmental wages may also impact a student's future financial aid allocation since these departmental wages are not
considered "need based" financial aid, like as work study is, and count as income earned by the student.
The College Work-study Programs are designed to provide employment opportunities for students who are in need of the earnings and part-time employment in order to help pay education expenses. Work-study salary rate is at least the current Federal minimum wage, but may be higher, depending on the type of work and skills required. A Work-study award depends on when you apply, your level of need, and the funding level received by UTEP. An award under the College Work-study Program on your Award Letter indicates that we will attempt to place you in a job where the amount awards may be earned. If you have been awarded College Work-study, you must complete a College Work-study application in order to renew your current position or be placed in a pool of names submitted to departments for interviewing. Even if you are currently employed under College Work-study, you must complete this form. It is of utmost importance that you read and understand the College Work-study Policies and regulations.
