Federal Work Study Employment, through Federal government funding, provides eligible students with the opportunity to work on or off campus and earn funds as an alternative to loan debt. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to qualify. Students can obtain positions both on and off campus for work study and non-work study employment.

Therefore, it is essential for all Direct Deposit employees currently receiving their printed copy of the direct deposit pay advice to sign up for electronic delivery via the Payroll Online Service Center (POSC) from the CPB website. Please click here for instructions on how to sign up using the POSC. If employees need historical pay advice information, they can retrieve the information from the POSC. It offers the most current 12 months of pay advice information to employees using direct deposit.
