Students with graduate or doctoral assistant assignments may accept additional part-time campus employment, up to a maximum of 9 hours during their assistantship only with prior approval from the department where they are employed as an assistant and the Graduate School. Students with a partial, or 10 hour, assistantship are also limited to 9 additional hours of supplemental student employment. Approval may be obtained through the Additional Employment Form for graduate assistants.

Adding to Payroll:
Use the STU1OO EPAF to add the student to student payroll when hired. If the position pays in excess of $9.00/hr., an S4 E-Class position number must be used. If you have any questions regarding the process, contact the Student Employment Office (285-2432) rather than the Graduate School office for questions regarding supplemental employment.
Students on graduate payroll submit a bi-weekly "Individual Absence" report (Form B-77) for their Graduate Assistantship. Students working supplemental student employment jobs enter the hours worked in Kronos either through the web or though time clocks. The time periods and submission deadlines are the same as for regular student payroll dates and both procedures for timekeeping must be employed.
Wage Rates :
Wages for graduate students working supplemental student jobs are subject to the same wage restrictions imposed by that job for any student working in that position. The minimum wage is $7.25/hr. as determined by the federal government and the maximum is $9.00/hr. as determined by the BSU Board of Trustees. However, for positions posted as “graduate” positions, the maximum is the hourly equivalent to the prevailing annual stipend for the hiring department. For example, if the stipend is $8,025 per year, the hourly rate is $12.53. This equates to $8,025 / 640 (160 days with 4 hours a day in the academic year) = $12.539062. Round down so the total amount allotted is not exceeded.
End of Graduate Assistantship Contract :
Please note that when an employee's graduate assistantship contract ends, supplemental assignments do not necessarily. If you want to retain a graduate student in a regular student employment position after his or her graduate contract ends, you should review the student's employment status to insure the student remains in Banner. You may check with the Student Employment office (285-2432) for verification or consult your Kronos roster.
If you have any questions about this process, contact the Student Employment Coordinator at 285-2432.
