Work During Break Periods

Some departments are allocated student labor hours for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring break periods. Students who wish to work during a break should first consult their labor supervisor. If hours are unavailable, the Labor Program Office may assist in locating other vacancies that may exist on campus. Break hours are not guaranteed and are based on availability. Upper-class students may be expected to work during break periods as established upon hiring; first-year students may volunteer for break period labor, but they are not required to work.

A new Labor Status From is required of all break positions. The break rate is set at the WLS level 6 rate. For further information, please consult our website at
