Need Temporary Student Assistance?
The Student Temporary Assist Team (STAT) allows on-campus departments to request Federal Work Study (FWS) students for short-term assignments and special projects from 2-3 hours a day, week, or up to 30 days in duration. The program mirrors a temporary agency on allowing for variety of on-campus work experiences and flexibility to meet diverse needs. The CMC Student Employment Team processes all of the STAT E-1s paperwork and payroll, so you need to do is sign off on the hours worked!
For more information about how to get involved with the STAT program contact: STAT@odu.edu for assistance or request a student through the Student Temporary Assist Team (STAT)!
