Student employees are part-time, temporary employees who are enrolled in at least 6 credits (undergraduate) or 5 credits (graduate). Student employees are typically paid on an hourly basis and are non-exempt under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) rules making them eligible for overtime. Student employee classification and compensation is administered under the Student Compensation plan.

The Student Employment program is administered by three departments, Career Center, Financial Aid, and Human Resource Services. HR Classification/Compensation has established a student compensation structure and classification schedule that will help to ensure equity across campus and compliance with state and federal regulations.
