Federal Work-Study Procedures

The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program is an excellent opportunity for departments to hire students with a FWS award at only 25% of the cost of hiring a non-FWS student. FWS students are State employees, even if they work on a Cal Poly Corporation (CPC) account. Our CPC payroll office processes the timesheets, however the FWS students pick up their monthly paychecks in Administration Building 1, Room 211. To hire a FWS student, please follow the instructions below:

If you have any questions or need further assistance regarding hiring a FWS student, please call CPC Human Resources at 6-6446 or email [email protected]. For payroll-related questions, please call Nancy Reyes in CPC Payroll at 6-6536 or email her at [email protected].
