Your assigned UCM supervisor will establish employment expectations and guidelines specific to your office or department and to your position. Since student employment is a form of institutional financial assistance, you must be a continuing, Central Missouri, degree-seeking student to work on campus. You must also be eligible to work in the United States. As a student employee, you are limited to part-time work because the primary reason for being at Central Missouri is to pursue academic studies.
Your most important responsibility is to work hard and perform duties to the best of your abilities.
- Report to work on time and work your scheduled hours.
- Always contact your supervisor as early as possible in the event of illness or other reasons for absence or tardiness.
- Dress according to the recommendations of your supervisor. Individual departments may specify dress guidelines when necessary to meet health regulations or to conduct the activities of the area.
- Handling confidential information about the university, faculty, staff, or students is one of your most serious responsibilities. You should not release this kind of information to anyone without your supervisor's permission.
- You should periodically request evaluations of your work and ask your supervisor for copies of any written reviews.
- Provide sufficient notice to your supervisor (preferably two weeks) if you decide to leave your job for any reason.
If you have been awarded Federal Work-Study or have an athletic grant in aid, you are limited in the amount of money you can earn during the award period. The Student Financial Assistance Office will notify you of the amount of money you can earn in your financial aid award letter. Contact the Student Financial Assistance Office early in the academic year if you need to request an adjustment in your earnings limit.
