Social Security taxes (FICA) are not deducted for Student Employees working on the CWU campus during the academic year. During Summer break students who are not enrolled, or enrolled less than half time, will have FICA deducted from their pay. The special IRS FICA exemption does not apply to students who are employed in off-campus jobs, including off-campus Work-Study jobs.
