Last Revised: April 2013
The primary purpose of the Student Employment Office within the Human Resources Office is to:
An eligible student, for this purpose, is defined as an individual who is enrolled as an undergraduate student, graduate student or graduate special during the fall or spring terms in any academic year. Departments will verify that a student is enrolled by requesting a copy of their course schedule at the beginning of each term. The course schedule is important so that hours can be scheduled that do not conflict with class times. Only enrolled UNR students are eligible for student employment. Students at other NSHE institutions are not eligible. A student may work during the summer term if they are enrolled at the University during the summer terms or are enrolled for the fall semester. Students who graduate or terminate their academic program are no longer eligible for student employment beyond the calendar month of such action. A graduate may enroll as a graduate special or pursue a graduate degree to regain eligibility.
A student who is no longer enrolled in classes will be terminated from their student employment positions immediately upon notification being sent to the hiring department by Human Resources.
On-Campus Job Postings:
In order to provide equal opportunity and access to on-campus employment, student employment vacancies typically will be posted on https://www.unrsearch.com/. The ultimate goal of on-campus student employment is to provide work experience for our students, provide financial aid in the form of wages and increase the student’s likelihood for academic success.
A student may not begin work until the hiring department has confirmed the student meets the minimum eligibility requirements either through checking the student’s records in the student information system or by verifying eligibility with the Student Employment Office.
Students on probation may request a one-semester-only exception to the GPA requirements. The exception request should be initiated by the hiring department, include a letter from the student stating the unique circumstances and a letter from the student’s academic advisor indicating support of the employment. These exceptions should be routed to the Student Employment Office for approval. These exceptions may be granted provided there is a reasonable expectation of satisfactory academic progress. On-campus employment of a student must always be secondary to considerations for their academic success.
