The Student Employment Program allows currently enrolled students, excluding University faculty and staff employees, to work up to 20 hours per week during the Fall and Spring semesters and 35 hours per week during the Summer semester and academic breaks to earn funds to help pay for their educational expenses. Departments with 40 hour workweeks may allow students to work up to 40 hours during breaks and the Summer semester.

If a student holds multiple jobs on campus, the hours restriction applies across all University student employment. That is, no student may work more than a total of 20 hours per week during academic periods cumulative between all University student jobs. The student employee is responsible for notifying their supervisor in each job of all other University student employment positions held, along with information regarding scheduled hours of work in each.


An "international student" is one that is not a United States citizen or permanent resident (green card holder) and requires a student visa (F-1 or J-1) to study in the United States.

Students are able to work on campus 20 hours per week during the Spring and Fall semesters and 35 hours per week during the break periods and Summer semester. Departments with 40 hour workweeks can allow students to work up to 40 hours during breaks and the summer semester.
