Degree seeking students registered full-time in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences (KSAS) & the Whiting School of Engineering (WSE) are eligible to work through the Office of Student Employment Services (SES). Students who are considered to be full-time are those who pay full-time tuition as well as those who are registered for the required number of credits/courses to be deemed full-load. Other KSAS and WSE students who are eligible to work through SES include:

  • International students who are in their final semester, registered for less than full-load.
  • Visiting ‘exchange’ students to KSAS and WSE registered full-time/full-load.
  • Students registered part-time who have a Federal Work Study award.

What happens after conferral?

Students on payroll who graduate must be terminated from their student position using the effective date of conferral; departments may not continue paying the students through the end of the conferral month. For example, if graduation is 5/24, the effective date on the ISR Termination must match the conferral date of 5/24, it cannot be 5/31. (This policy was established in 2014 by the Deans of ASEN, General Counsel, SES, and OIS).

The only exception to this rule is if the student is continuing into a full‑time JHU Masters or PhD program; in which case the hiring department may need to submit a reassignment.

If the student has FWS, any hours worked from the end date of FWS (fall award); through the end of December, would be charged 100% to the hiring department.

What about ‘incoming’ students?

Incoming KSAS and WSE students, who are pre-registered for the fall semester, including new graduate students accepted into a full-time program, are eligible to work through SES beginning July 1 (prior to their first day of classes).
