Student Employment Eligibility Report

The Student Employment Eligibility Audit report captures student employees’ academic enrollment and employment eligibility information.  The intent of the report is to provide departments with the ability to review and audit employment eligibility for students with active employment records and to assist with coordinating work schedules for students with multiple jobs across campus.  The report captures basic information pertaining to the students’ department, job, academic load, eligible for employment based on academic load, and an indication of whether the students have one or multiple jobs on campus.

The report can be run on an as-needed basis but should be run at least once a month and prior to the beginning of a new pay period.  Review the report to ensure that all students listed are eligible for continued employment*.  In cases where students are not eligible for employment, discuss employment guidelines with the student and process applicable terminations in a timely manner.   For students who have multiple jobs on campus, the employing departments should work together to review and determine the best work schedule for the student and the department.  Further, the department(s) and students should work jointly to ensure that the total hours worked in all jobs combined do not exceed the 20-hour per week limit during the academic semester.  Note that the workweek begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday and the 20-hour maximum applies to the workweek regardless if the days cross pay periods.  Each department is responsible for administering and monitoring their student employment to ensure compliance with employment and pay guidelines.  Please refer to the Student Assistant/Federal Work Study Compensation Plan at for additional information regarding allowable hours.

* It is important to monitor student employment eligibility even during add/drop periods at the beginning of the semester (August/September and January/February) and clearly communicate employment guidelines and expectations with the students.  Departments should not schedule work for their students until the students have officially enrolled in the required number of units. 


Access to the report is included in the setup for Time & Attendance Timekeepers, Approvers, and Student Hire module users.  Access to the contents of the report is based on the user’s security.  Users will only be able to view students within their security access and students from other departments only if the student holds multiple jobs and at least one job falls within the user’s security.


 Student Employment Eligibility



Please note the following items on the Sample Report:

  • Student Number 1 is an undergraduate student who does not meet the minimum enrollment requirement to be eligible to work as a student employee.  Further, this student also has multiple jobs as noted with the “Multiple Jobs” indicator of Y for Yes.
  • Student Number 2 is an undergraduate student taking 14 units and is eligible to work, however, he/she has multiple jobs on campus so the work schedule for this student should be coordinated with the employing departments.
  • Student Number 3 is not enrolled and is not eligible to work as a student employee.
  • Student Number 4 is a graduate student who does not meet the minimum enrollment requirement to be eligible to work as a student employee.
