Student Work and Meal Time Outs

A paid fifteen (15) minute break is required for students working four (4) consecutive hours and an unpaid thirty (30) minute meal break is required for students working at or beyond five (5) consecutive hours a day.  Students are expected to clock out when taking the 30 minute meal break.


Students are expected to solely engage in assigned duties during labor hours. Federal work-study regulations require students to be actively engaged in campus work while on the clock. The purpose of the Federal Work Study program (FWS) is as follows: "The FWS provides funds for part-time employment to help students to finance the costs of postsecondary education [...]" Supervisors will facilitate this by providing adequate tasks for students.
