Degree seeking students registered full-time in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences & the Whiting School of Engineering 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 the Office of Student Employment include:

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


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).


What happens after conferral?

Students who work at the university must be removed from their student position(s) in payroll once they complete their degree requirements, fall below full-time status, or their appointment ends. In most cases, the student would have until December 31 to be terminated or reassigned into a staff position.   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.
