Student Employment

Student Work Schedule

Your work hours will be determined by you and your supervisor. Normally, work hours can be arranged around your class schedule. Some jobs may require specific hours which cannot change to fit your class schedule during a future term. Discuss the flexibility of work hours with your supervisor before you accept the position to avoid future problems. If you know that you will have sports or other commitments in a certain quarter, bring this up during the interview so that you and the supervisor are clear on expectations.

International student employees CAN NEVER exceed 19 hours per week during the quarter while classes are in session; there are very severe penalties for students and employers who exceed their limits. Non-international students can average their hours over the month.

If you need to miss work for any reason, make sure you have a clear understanding from your supervisor on the policy for coming in late, missing a shift, finding a substitute, etc.
