Student Recruitment and Employment

Student Guidelines:

Eligibility: Only current UNF students are eligible to work student positions. An individual is no longer considered a current student if:

  • They have graduated from UNF
  • They have declared separation from UNF (e.g., the individual has notified their hiring department that they will no longer by attending UNF)
  • They have not been enrolled in classes for at least 2 consecutive semesters

*Working Hours:

  1. International students on F-1 and J-1 visas may work on-campus a maximum of 20 hours per week when classes are in session. Working more than 20 hours per week may result in serious consequences for the student, such as termination of student status. Additional information about International student employment can be found on the HR International Employees and International Center webpages.
  2. Students working Federal Work Study (FWS) positions are eligible to work a maximum of 20 hours per week when classes are in session. The hiring department will be responsible for compensating student employees who's total weekly hours are above the maximum. Additional information about FWS student employment can be found on the Financial Aid webpage.

Taxation: Students enrolled at least half-time during a semester are qualified for the FICA exemption. Student employees who qualify for this exemption will not have Social Security or Medicare taxes deducted from their pay checks. Please reference the Student Tax Exemption webpage for more information.
