Student Employment Manual
Definition of a Student Employee
This definition excludes students who are employed as academic support personnel such as Graduate Assistants, Undergraduate Assistants, Assistant Instructors, and Academic Advisors. Questions concerning the employment of students in these categories should be directed to the Office of the Provost, the appropriate Vice President, or Dean.
Students who have graduated and are not planning to continue with another degree program, may stay on the student employee payroll until the day before the next semester begins if they are to continue working.
