Multiple Appointments/Employment

Graduate assistantship awardees are limited to 24 total hours of combined service and student hourly work while school is in session. In instances like this, the following policies regarding multiple appointments must be followed:

  • Departments are responsible for monitoring of hours worked by student employees assigned to their unit; this is especially important for students who hold multiple student appointments.
  • The program must closely monitor academic progress.
  • The additional appointment must be terminated if a student does not maintain academic progress deemed to be acceptable by the program.

This limit applies only while school is in session. During scheduled breaks only, if students work more than 20 hours or they work more than the prorated salary hours required, they must be compensated at an hourly rate for the extra work. Students can be employed for a maximum of 40 hrs./week during scheduled breaks.

International students are limited to working 20 hours per week while school is in session and are limited to 40 hours per week during schedule breaks. All International Students must have onboarding conducted by the International Services Office. An international student on F-1 or J-1 immigration status contemplating employment should contact the International Student Services Office at 1-513-556-4278.
