Student Employee Definition

Op7.15-3 Student Employee Definition

A student employee is a part-time hourly employee who is concurrently enrolled at Missouri State University with the primary goal of achieving a degree and therefore, must be degree-seeking. Thus, the employment is interim or temporary in nature and is incidental to the pursuit of an academic program.

Students may not perform any work or subsequently be paid for work performed before all steps in the hiring process have been completed.
