Student Worker Assistance Team

The Student Worker Assistance Team (SWAT) allows departments to hire Federal Work Study student employees on a termporary basis at no cost to them.

Our goal is to provide opportunity for more FWS student employment at OU, as well as to provide students an opportunity to make connections with campus departments and staff.

Program Information

  • Students are hired and paid through Financial Aid Services.
  • Students are FERPA trained.
  • Students submit their semester schedule of availability to FAS.
  • Departments logon to the SWAT scheduler and reserve a student to work for them during the time they are available.
  • Students can be reserved up to 8 days in advance.
  • SWAT students are not available during summer semester.


  • Timesheets should be submitted via fax, email, or by hand delivery bi-weekly on the Friday of the pay period ending date.
