Can I Hire a Graduate During Summer Break?

Supervisors cannot hire students through the student employment program that have graduated except under the following circumstances:

  • Students needed for reunion weekend
  • Students finishing research work
  • Other specific exceptions for unusual circumstances

The student employment program is meant to help current/returning students. If the supervisor wants to hire a graduate that does not fit into one of the above exceptions, they can do so through Human Resources. The graduate would then be considered a temporary employee. The graduates wages will not come out of the normal student employment break budget but will be charged to your normal departmental budget.
