Work Study

Students who 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.  When we receive the completed deferment form with an original signature, we will set up a tuition credit (deferment) based on a percentage (10-90 percent) that the student requests.  The students’ tuition account will be credited only the amount necessary to assist in the payment of the tuition balance, not to exceed the balance. Once we receive the completed Work Study Deferment form, we will set up automatic withdrawals from their bi-weekly paychecks.

Please mail the completed form back to:

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

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. 

Every payday, accounts will be analyzed on an individual basis to make sure students will be able to pay back their deferments by the end of the semester. Students who are short hours will be notified via email letting them know they need to add more hours. Generally, students should work 10-12 hours every week to pay down their deferment.

A credit balance on the tuition account may result in the work student deferment being reduced or cancelled.

Students may adjust their deferment at any time in writing.

At the end of the semester, the student tuition account will be charged for any unearned portion of the deferment. Any amount that is charged back will be due within 30 days of the chargeback.
