If you are currently employed at either BYUH or PCC, please login to Workday to apply for jobs. If you do not have a job on campus or at PCC then you will need to apply for jobs through our job board and will be required to create a candidate account.

Work Hours

Semesters

All actively enrolled students, both domestic and international, that are employed on-campus may work up to 19 hours per week even if the start or end of the semester falls midweek. Students cannot work more than 19 hours a week.

The one-week break between semesters

All actively enrolled students, both domestic and international, may work up to 40 hours during the one-week break between semesters.

Summer Break

Summer employment is contingent upon active enrollment in spring and fall semesters. During the 9-week break, student employees may work up to 40 hours per week, with the exception of the fourth week, which must be 19 hours.

Approved Semester Leave

Students on an approved semester leave may work up to 40 hours per week for three consecutive weeks but must decrease to 19 hours on the fourth week. Domestic students on approved semester leave are subject to FICA.

Please note that students must apply and be approved for semester leave in order to continue employment in their student positions. To apply for semester leave, students must meet with their academic advisor or visit the Office of the Registrar to complete the required form.

New & Returning Students

New and returning students may begin working three weeks prior to the start of the semester they are admitted.

Graduating Students

International students who are graduating and leaving the island on or near graduation day must stop employment three workdays prior to graduation and submit a “Request for Final Payroll Check” form to HR. The Request for Final Payroll Check form must be submitted on or before three days prior to graduation. Final payroll requests must be sent to melissa.martinez@byuh.edu after the student has clocked out for their final shift and all hours worked have been submitted and approved by their supervisor.

For those graduating and not leaving the island, the last day of work will be graduation day. Graduates should submit the Request for Final Payroll Check form, but the processing time will be the following Monday and Wednesday depending on when the request form was turned in.

*International student graduates may work until graduation day if they will not be leaving the island on or near graduation.

*Domestic graduates may legally work up to three weeks post-graduation as a student.
