A student employee is a full-time or part-time student, enrolled at Florida Atlantic University, registered at least half-time and whose primary purpose for being at the University is the achievement of a degree or certification. During the summer semester, an individual is considered a student employee if the student was enrolled and degree-seeking in the preceding Spring Semester and is intending to enroll for Fall Semester classes.

Exceptions can be made for those desiring to become full-time line position employees which would make their student status secondary. Students who have graduated must have their student appointments terminated by the date of graduation. These individuals can be hired through the Processing & Records/Employment Office.

All international students must be registered full-time for spring and fall semesters, except for their graduating semester.


Student employees are considered at-will employees, and their employment is interim or temporary and incidental to the pursuit of a degree or certification. Those individuals not meeting the definition of a student employee must be hired through the Processing & Records/Employment Office.

All student appointments must be processed prior to the beginning date of each assignment . The student appointment is not final or binding until fully approved and processed by the Student Employment Office.

Total student appointments shall not exceed 20 hours or .5 FTE per week during periods when classes are in session. Exceptions, within reasonable limits, may be made upon the approval of the student’s Academic Advisor, or in the case of graduate students, the Dean of the Graduate College.  All exceptions need to be submitted to the Student Employment Office every semester for final approval.  

International students may not work over 20 hours per week while school is in session, no exceptions

All students are able to work up to 40 hours per week during semester breaks and summer terms. However, total earnings may not exceed the maximum allocated for the period of appointment.
