Work Study

Students that have been awarded a work study position on campus can use the money they will earn over the semester to pay for part of their tuition cost. With the completed Work Study Deferment form, we can set up an automatic withdrawal from their bi-weekly paychecks. When we receive the completed form with an original signature, we will set up a deferment of the estimated amount based on a percentage (10-90 percent) of the work study award amount.

Please mail the completed form back to:

Niagara University Student Accounts
PO Box 2004
Niagara University, NY 14109

We must have an original signature.

If you sign up for the deferment and miss more than two deferment payments, we may cancel your deferment because you are presumably not working at your position. We send home work study statements every month during the academic year, so students can monitor their accounts.

The student account will be credited the full percentage elected in the Fall as estimated earnings. The Spring may be less depending on the work study account balance at the end of the Fall. Prior to registration, all accounts will be analyzed on an individual basis to make sure students will be able to fulfill their deferments.  Some adjustments may be necessary at that time. Students may adjust their deferment at any time in writing. The student tuition account will be charged for any unearned portion of the deferment at the end of each semester. Any amount that is charged back will be due within 30 days of the chargeback. A credit balance on the tuition account may result in the work student deferment being reduced or cancelled.
