Students need to be enrolled in 6 credits or more and have at least a 2.0 GPA to be eligible to work on campus. You will not need to take courses during the summer to begin or maintain student employment, as long as you are enrolled as a student for the coming Fall semester.

  • During the semester students may work 20 hours a week.
  • If you have a good academic standing, you can apply for a waiver to work up to 40 hours a week during the semester. These waivers are handled by the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities. See the student employee request waiver page for more information. 
  • While student employees can work 40 hours week during Spring Break, Winter Break, and during the summer, however the hours available will vary based on department and supervisor.   Want more information? See the HR FAQ page.

Student positions are typically classed as Student Assistant A, B or C. Currently, Student Assistant A and B positions start at $10.19 hourly and Student Assistant C positions start at $10.50. Typically the difference in classification comes down to job duties and expectations.
