Student Employment Certification Statement & Acknowledgement of Receipt For The Secured Use And Confidentiality Of University Records And Data

To work as a student employee on campus, you must have agreed to and electronically signed the "Student Employment Certification Statement" and "Acknowledgement of Receipt for the Secured Use and Confidentiality of University Records and Data" by CLICKING ON THE ACCEPT BUTTON BELOW.  

I also acknowledge that the university reserves the right to make changes to these policies, as necessary, and that I am accountable to abide by those changes, and responsible for reviewing these policies upon accepting an offer of employment.

I understand, as a student employee, that:

  1. I agree to comply with all federal and state laws and all University policies;
  2. an individual is a student if education, not employment, is the predominant aspect of the employee's relationships with the employer.  Students employed through the On-Campus Student Employment Program must maintain HALF-TIME enrollment status (six credit hours for undergraduate students and four credit hours for graduate students) during fall and spring semester enrollment;
  3. if I drop below HALF-TIME credit hours (six credit hours for undergraduate students and four credit hours for graduate students), my employment with the university will be terminated immediately;
  4. my employment during any active assignment period is subject to meeting enrollment requirements, my job performance, departmental staffing needs, university and/or departmental budgetary considerations, and my adherence to established university and/or departmental policies and procedures;
  5. if I am a Federal Work-Study (FWS) student employee, my hours per week will be dictated by my Federal Work Study award as determined by the Student Financial Aid Office, my assignment will be terminated when I earn my FWS limit unless renewed by the department, and that FWS funding will be terminated if I cease to be enrolled at least HALF-TIME during the fall and spring semester;
  6. I agree, as a condition of employment, to authorize Kent State University to automatically deposit my paycheck, including any Federal Work Study earnings, into my designated bank account or a university approved stored-value card, in accordance with Volume 4, Chapter 1 (Disbursing Federal Student Aid (FSA) Funds), of the Federal Student Aid Handbook;
  7. I agree to work no more than the 28 maximum hours permitted per week as established by university policy, and understand that violation of this policy will result in immediate termination of employment;
  8. if I am a full-time international student on a F Visa, U.S. Federal regulations do not allow me to work more than 20 hours per week while school is in session and that a violation of this regulation may immediately affect my nonimmigrant status;
  9. I agree to be bound by any additional terms and conditions of employment established by my employing department and that the employing department will assign my duties;
  10. my employment in certain positions may be dependent on the outcome of a background check;
  11. summer employment is contingent upon my enrollment during the following fall semester unless I am enrolled half-time for summer or graduating in August; and if I am not enrolled during the summer, I am required to contribute to OPERS;
  12. I can only request to waive my contribution to OPERS by completing an OPERS “Request for Optional Exemption as a Student” in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code Section 145.03;
  13. if I am a university athlete, I must first complete a “Student-Athlete Employment Verification Form,” available from the Athletic Department, and I must comply with specific NCAA procedures and regulations regarding my eligibility to receive employment earnings;
