Student FAQ

 

 

I am a graduate student receiving a fellowship, how and when do I get paid?

U.S. Residents: Your fellowship will be paid through the payroll system. You will receive your check/direct deposit advice from your department according the semi monthly payroll schedule posted under deadlines and pay dates on this website. The amount of fellowship paid to you by Brown University will not be included in a W2 form at year end. The total amount paid to you is listed in the year to date column on your pay stub. Use the amount on your final stub when completing your tax filing for the calendar year.

Non U.S. Residents: Your fellowship will be paid through the payroll system. You will receive your check/direct deposit advice from your department according to the semi monthly payroll schedule posted under deadlines and pay dates on this website. The amount of fellowship paid to you by Brown University will be included in form 1042S at calendar year end. You will receive this form by February 1st and should use this form to complete your tax filing for the calendar year.

I am a Brown student (either graduate or undergraduate) and noticed that no Social Security or Medicare taxes have been withheld  from my check. Is this correct?

This is correct as long as you are enrolled at least ½ time during the academic year. However, Social Security and Medicare taxes must be withheld from students who are enrolled less than ½ time and from all student pay during the summer months.
