Student Employment

 
 
Student Employee Information
 
Student employees and work-studies can work up to 10 hours per week. Work-study hours based on an award through financial aid. For more information, visit the Federal Work Study site. Student employees and work-studies cannot work more than 20 hours a week even if making up hours.

Students working a four-hour shift take a 15-minute paid break (not shown on timesheets). Five-hour shifts receive a break of either 30 or 60 minutes that must be shown on timesheets in Workforce.
 
Since student employment cultivates a learning environment, students are allowed to work on assignments or course work during downtime. Please note: this is not a guarantee, as some departments do not have idle time.

Although there is no mandated dress code, please use care in clothing choices. For instance, cropped tops, torn jeans and short shorts are not generally accepted. Supervisors decide on the dress code within their departments.


Supervisor Information
 
Student employees and work-studies can work 10 hours per week per semester. It the supervisor’s responsibility to keep track of the number of hours students work each semester.

Students scheduled to work shifts more than five hours, must take a lunch break of either 30 or 60 minutes that must be shown on their time sheets in Workforce. Students cannot work more than 20 hours a week even if making up time.
 
MAKE SURE TIMESHEETS ARE APPROVED ON TIME!  It is the supervisor’s responsibility to approve timesheets in Workforce by the designated time issued by Payroll.
 
Train student employees and work-studies on proper office procedures, decorum and equipment use. Please emphasize phone use. If it is necessary to make or receive personal calls, then ensure they are brief and infrequent. Dress code should be established and communicated. Do not send students on errands to other departments without ID badges. Also, do not ask them to complete tasks such as using the mail machine or making copies without proper training.
