Federal Work Study (FWS) Program
The Federal Work Study program provides need-based financial aid to students that allows them to earn money by working part-time on MIAD’s campus. When a student is eligible for FWS, his or her chances of being hired on-campus may increase. Questions regarding FWS eligibility should be directed to the Financial Aid office.
All on-campus employees clock-in hours through our on-line ADP payroll system. Your supervisor will train you on how to use the system.
Paychecks are available on the 15th and 28th of every month from the Human Resources Office located in the R45 office suite on the River Level. Direct deposit of checks into a checking or savings account is available.
