|Title: Student Employment||Revised: 07/01/97; 12/04/02|
|Approval Date: 04/19/06||President’s Signature: on file|
The University provides financial aid to eligible students in several ways through employment; part-time employment may be offered via the University work-study program or through “personal services” employment. Student employment is intended to assist the student in pursuing their education versus a form of regular and on-going employment or support. For this reason, the University places primary emphasis upon a student’s course of study versus the University’s employment needs.
I. The regulation regarding nepotism shall not apply with respect to part-time employment of students except that supervisors shall not supervise members of their immediate families.
II. Student employment shall be restricted to students who are in every way in good standing at the University. In all cases payment shall be according to the rates currently approved.
III. It is the intention of the University to establish that the rates paid for student workers are applied in a fair and consistent manner with consideration being given to the type of work being performed. All rates recommended for student employment are subject to review by Human Resources / Payroll prior to the student commencing work.
IV. A student shall not be employed for more than twenty hours during a week in which school is in session. Extraordinary circumstances may contribute to a student being employed more than twenty hours during a week in which school is in session, but prior approval must be obtained from the Registrar of the University.
V. Students are not to be allowed to work without prior official approval and cannot be paid until proper payroll and employment forms and authorizations are completed and approved at all levels.
VI. Requests for student employees, whether work-study or personal services, must be resubmitted via a completed “Requisition for Student Employment” form. Forms are available from the Human Resources Department. Student Personal Service employment is utilized in various departments throughout the University and may be available depending upon individual unit need.
VII Student work study employment is coordinated via the University’s student Financial Aid Office. Applications for the student work study program, approval, and work assignments are all handled by the Financial Aid Office.
