The University of Cincinnati endorses the practice of making student worker opportunities available to University of Cincinnati students on a priority basis. Non-UC students may be appointed as student workers if UC students do not possess the specialized skills, if there is a lack of interest by UC students or if the requirements for the position provide the opportunity for non-UC students. Persons under sixteen years of age shall not be employed by the University of Cincinnati. Student worker appointments shall conform to the university policies regarding nepotism.
On-campus student worker openings should be announced by the hiring department in some form of general posting. Hiring departments may use the People Admin requisition/application system at www.jobsatuc.com to announce their openings and must use this forum to hire their selected student worker candidate.
Student workers must be enrolled at least 6 credit hours to be eligible for employment as a student employee. Student workers shall not be scheduled to work more than thirty (30) hours per week. International students on F-1 and J-1 visas are permitted to work on-campus for a maximum of twenty (20) hours per week while school is in session, unlimited hours during scheduled breaks (i.e., summer, spring break). Exceptions to the appointments, internship appointments, students working during semester breaks and summer semester.
Student workers shall be paid for all hours worked in a pay period and recorded by the supervisor. Student workers shall be paid no less than the minimum wage in effect under federal law. Student workers shall not be paid more than a regular UC employee performing similar duties. Student workers are not eligible to receive vacation leave, sick leave, holiday pay, shift differential or unemployment compensation. International students who have been in the U.S. less than five years are exempt from Social Security (FICA) taxes.
A student worker appointment is made by hiring students to requisitions created in PeopleAdmin.
Student workers must sign the Student Worker Enrollment Verification Form and produce evidence of enrollment upon request, to retain their employment status. Student workers who failed to meet the enrollment requirement for the entire quarter shall be terminated.
For questions related to student worker employment please refer to the Student Employment policy. For detailed instructions on student hiring in People Admin, please refer to the online policy manual at www.jobsatuc.com/hr.
