Student Employee Position Classifications

The Office of Student Employment has been working with Human Resources, Academic Affairs, The Office of the General Counsel and various administrative and college offices to update and more succinctly define different student employee positions. While working with these areas, we’ve identified certain needs; specifically consistency as to how specific student positions are titled and paid to make sure they fall in line with federal laws and regulations as well as the need to move atypical student payments online, similar to staff and faculty payments.
