According to the policy established by Seattle University, student employees may work no more than twenty hours per week while school is in session.
During scheduled periods of non-enrollment (winter and spring breaks) students may work up to forty hours per week. During the summer term, students may work forty hours per week provided they're not enrolled half-time or more. Undergraduate students enrolled for 6 credits or more and graduate students enrolled for 3 credits or more continue to fall under the twenty-hour-per-week maximum while enrolled in summer term courses.
Students who are enrolled less than half-time (five credits or less as undergraduate students; one or two credits as graduate students) during fall, winter and/or spring quarters are considered "temporary employees" rather than "student employees." Students in this category must complete all hire paperwork with the Human Resources Office in the Rianna Building at 718 - 12th Avenue (between Columbia and Cherry). As temporary employees, at their supervisor's discretion, students may work up to forty hours per week.
Additional on-campus student employment policies and procedures can be found in the Supervisor's Guide for Student Employment.
