Summer Employment without Full-time Enrollment

For summer semester only, students who are not registered for graduate credit hours or are registered for less than 12 credits hours are eligible to be employed by their respective program, usually by performing the duties of their assistantship such as teaching or lab work. In this case, the student will receive a stipend for the work performed. Retirement funds and taxes will be withheld from the student’s check.

Questions about options with retirement funds once separated from the university should be directed to Human Resources and/or OPERS.
