Salary & Allowable Working Hours

Undergraduate students are paid $14.25 per hour. Graduate students are paid $14.50 per hour and the Graduate Office matches their hours at $12.00 per hour as Financial Aid credit. Students may not work more than 20 hours per week during school sessions, 40 hours per week during school vacations, 8 hours per day, and 6 consecutive days in a work week (Sunday through Saturday). Any work beyond these amounts earns overtime pay. Any overtime paid will deplete the award balance more quickly.
