Twin Cities Campus Student Employment Rules
Every student employee must be aware and familiar with the Twin Cities Campus Student Employment Rules. This document is only available online.
Student Position Descriptions
The job title for students working in CRSS is Student Library Assistant. Every student hired assumes the basic responsibilities of shelving materials, stack maintenance, searches, and other duties as assigned. Students are also trained to work the circulation desks and assist in special projects, once they are familiar with the basics.
Students must be registered for a minimum amount of credits to be eligible for student employment. Dropping below the minimum credit load will result in loss of job and negate payment for hours worked. Check with a supervisor for minimum credit level.
Students employed at one or more campus jobs cannot exceed 40 work hours per week. Notify a supervisor if you have more than one campus job, or change the number of credits you are registered for.
Work Study Students
In addition to the rules governing student employment, there are rules and conditions that apply to work-study students. Students receiving work-study may have limited earnings eligibility. The work-study amount is determined by the Office of Student Financial Aid. Earnings are monitored to ensure they do not exceed the work-study award.
Work Study Status
When students are no longer eligible for work-study, staff will try to transfer them into a non-work-study position. This is dependent upon available funds and is not guaranteed. When this occurs, the number of hours a student works may decrease.
University closings are announced on WCCO 830AM. Closing information is also available by calling the University Librarian’s office (612) 624-4520.
