This policy outlines hourly student wage expectations placed by the Student Services Finance Committee for the General Student Services Funded budgets for student organizations.
This policy applies to any Registered Student Organization seeking funding or who is currently funded by the General Student Services Fund.
No student position shall be budgeted for more than 20 hours per week without two-thirds (2/3) vote by the committee.
Student hourly salaries will be budgeted at $12/hour.
Student hourly salaries shall be budgeted in separate line items for the academic year and summer semester.
Academic year positions shall not exceed 33 weeks in position.
Summer semester positions shall not exceed 15 weeks in position.
No student employee may work over 20 hours in a week without a wage exemption form. Wage exemptions must be approved by the committee with a two-thirds (2/3) vote prior to the end of the pay period in which the exemption occurs. Failure to do so will result in a wage violation. At any point when the SSFC does not meet, wage exemptions are at the Chair's discretion.
No student employee may work over 29 hours in a week under any circumstances, with or without a wage exemption, per Affordable Care Act requirements. This includes time worked at all campus jobs.
