Can I pay a student worker more than the Work Study wage range?

Yes. Please review the FWSP wage range to confirm that the rate you wish to pay exceeds the range for undergraduates or graduate students. When making the hire in Peoplesoft using the Quick Hire form you may enter a 'supplemental rate' to be paid in excess of the maximum hourly rate. Note that this will come out of your department budget in full and does not qualify for subsidy through FWSP.

Example: You want to pay an undergraduate student $15/hour but the max rate is $13.50/hour. When making the hire in PeopleSoft enter the hourly rate as $15/hour, check the Work Study Student box, and enter 1.50 in to Supplemental Rate.
