College departments/divisions vary in work schedules. Some offices require that all student hours be worked Monday through Friday from 8:00 – 5:00; other departments/divisions may require some night or weekend work. Students are not allowed to work over 6 hours in a day without a 30 minute break reflected on the timesheet. Students are not allowed to work more than 20 hours a week unless approved by financial aid office.
When a student is hired, both the student and supervisor complete a class/work schedule Form and determine an agreeable work schedule. Students are not allowed to work at any time in which their classes are in session. After setting up an agreeable schedule, the student must adhere to that schedule throughout the term.
Work-study commitments must take precedence over extracurricular activities such as clubs, athletics, etc. Continuous deviations from the work schedule will result in disciplinary action, which could include suspension from the job.
Regulations stipulate that a student cannot work during class time.
The official class schedule must not overlap with any time worked by the student during the term. (Federal Regulations are very specific on this point; individual timesheets and student schedules are included in financial aid audits.)
