HR-204 Graduate and Undergraduate Student Titles

SUMMARY:

Student titles can only be used for students, following the criteria listed below.  Student employees should not be scheduled to work more than an average of 28 hours per week across all concurrent university jobs during any measurement period.1

CRITERIA FOR USE OF STUDENT TITLES:

A student employee is an employee who is enrolled as a student at the University of Missouri and whose primary association with the University is related to the pursuit of an academic program. Because academic pursuit is the primary purpose of the student role, student employees should not be scheduled to work more than an average of 28 hours per week across all concurrent university jobs during any measurement period1 and should be in a student title as described below.

Persons who meet the following criteria are eligible to work in a student title:

  • The individual must be enrolled at the University of Missouri. Enrollment during summer is not required as long as the student was enrolled during the Winter semester or is admitted or enrolled for the Fall semester.
  • The individual's association with the University must primarily relate to the pursuit of an academic program.
  • The individual's employment is not required to be in his/her field of study if an undergraduate but may be required for graduate assistantship appointments.

Campuses may develop an expansion of these guidelines to further limit number of hours worked, establish number of hours enrolled, requirements to hold graduate appointments, level of compensation, etc.
