Job Classification & Hours
Students are hired under the Student Assistant series. If this is the first time you are hiring student workers or you are creating a new student worker role in your department use the Student Assistant Job Evaluation Matrix to assign the job to the appropriate classification.
UCI students hired in the class of Assistant I, II, III, IV are casual employees expected to work no more than 50% time on a week by week basis. If a student works more than 50% for two consecutive weeks he/she will be required to contribute to DCP, will have Medicare taxes deducted, and accrue sick time. If the time worked is during summer there is no academic impact. If the time worked is during the academic year, the student may undergo a work/class load review by the DOS and Academic Personnel to determine if adjustments are necessary.
