Student Employment Update

The Federal work study (FWS) program has shifted to web-time entry! 
All "active" student employees under this program will now be able to complete timesheets electronically through the TC Portal > TC Services tab after completing the authorization paperwork.
This will eliminate the pay lag and shift all work study employees in the same pay schedule as the current interim employees.
The web-time entry instructional training materials have been made available in the TC Portal > TC Services tab > TC Bookmarks section > WTE for Work Study Instructional Document and WTE for Work Study Approvers Instructional Document
Web-time entry pay schedule:
Each work week is Monday through Sunday; timesheet is due on Monday noon after the 2nd work week

** The 7/1/13 through 7/7/13 work week has been blocked off for all work study students to discontinue work.  That means no one should be entering time for this week!  The last week of work for 2012-13 is ending as of 6/30/13.
Student Employment at TC is being re-vamped! 
The new policy is being implemented as of Fall 2013. 
All pertinent TC staff have been notified. 
Students will start receiving an appointment letter and details about the policy upon being hired for some positions.
The graduate assistantship changes are primarily in the salary ranges, which has been updated in the GA section of our "Student Employment" menu.
