An effective hire email notification will be sent to the supervisor and student one business day after the student has attended his or her I-9 verification appointment. If students have not set up a work schedule, this would be the most appropriate time to do so. If you experience delays or technical issues when connecting work-study funds for the term, please email email@example.com.
Students cannot start earning FWS funds in a community work-study position until after their effective hire email is sent from the Office of Student Employment. This email will provide the date in which the student's funds were connected to the position to begin earning for the academic term. It is sent to both the student and supervisor.
Effective hire emails can be sent in two business days if all hiring documents are completed and submitted. This email is sent to the student and supervisor on file.
For questions about work-study award amounts, students should contact the Office of Student Financial Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions about processing eDocs, FWS job postings, or authorization forms for the IUPUI Work-Study Program, email email@example.com.
