A student employee is a part-time employee who is currently enrolled at the University of Nevada, Reno with the primary purpose of achieving a degree. Thus, the employment is interim or temporary in nature and is incidental to the pursuit of an academic program. If it is the intent of a department to work a student full-time during periods of enrollment (excluding winter and summer breaks) or in the capacity of a classified or faculty position, then the position must be established through Business Center North Personnel Services or UNR Human Resources.
Procedures for employing students:
To be exempt from FICA/Medicare taxes, the student must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours. Work for pay periods beginning after the end of the spring semester will be subject to FICA/Medicare unless the student is enrolled in a class during the first or second term of summer session.
