How many hours are student employees allowed to work?

Because education is the primary relationship of students to the university, students should average no more than 28 worked hours per week in a 12-month measurement period (October 4 through October 3). Please refer to Chapter 320.050: Employee Status in the university’s Collected Rules and Regulations and HR Policy 204: Graduate and Undergraduate Student Titles, or your campus specific guidelines (campus policy may be more restrictive). An individual who is expected to average more than 30 hours per week should be placed in a staff or academic title.
