The department share of total work-study and term-time wages is 50% with federal and institutional work-study funds paying the remaining 50%, up to the student's semester allocation. It is important to keep track of student's earnings as departments will be charged 100% if s/he earns more than his/her semester allotment. This primarily occurs when a student has more than one work-study job. You can monitor a student's Work-Study Allotment through the PeopleSoft.
