Student Employee Definition – A student employee is a part-time employee who is concurrently enrolled at North American University. On-campus student employment is interim, temporary and is a non-exempt hourly role with a maximum of 20 hours per week. International and Non-resident alien students who work more than 20 hours per week will be in danger of violating their visa status.
Between periods of regular enrollment (semester breaks or during the summer months), both US citizens and non-resident aliens may work up to 40 hours per week. Students employed through the College Work Study program are limited to a maximum of 20 hours per week and 29 hours per week during periods of non-enrollment.
