  • Career and Student Employment Services, Work-Study Congratulations - if you have been awarded work-study for the 2016-17 school year, you may have recently received a communication from Career and Student Employment Services. Their letter provides guidance on using their services to find student employment, but it contains an error. Please note: You are not required to notify Student Financial Aid if you wish to "accept" your work study award. Your award will be automatically accepted upon enrollment. Both Career and Student Employment Services and Student Financial Aid look forward to assisting you with you making the most of your work-study award.
