Nonstudent (160-Hour) Employment

Individuals employed by the university who are enrolled in fewer than six credit hours for undergraduate status or five credit hours for graduate status per semester are classified as nonstudent (160-hour) employees.

Once you are hired into a nonstudent (160-hour) position and have completed all needed payroll paperwork, you will keep a record of the hours you have worked. You will submit your timesheet to your employing department once every two weeks. You will receive a payroll check for the hours that you reported.

This is a one-time, temporary appointment, and successive appointments are not allowed. Employment is restricted to working a maximum of 160 hours during any calendar year. Any questions regarding 160- hour or 1,000-hour employment should be directed to Human Resources at 702-895-3504.
