  • The training is mandatory and must be repeated each academic year a supervisor participates in the Student Employment Program

Step 2: Submit a Student Help Request Form

Step 3: Verify Student Employment Eligibility

Students will need to complete the following to be eligible for student employment:

  • Student Employment Quiz (Located in their MyClark portal; Paying for College; Student Employment)

Supervising Student Employees

These guidelines, policies, and procedures have been developed to meet the needs of student employees and their supervisors. Student employment is intended to be a learning experience with clearly defined guidelines. We encourage supervisors and student employees to be aware of their responsibilities and be active agents in making the employment experience positive for all parties.

Basic Supervision

All student employees should have their work directed and monitored by a staff or faculty member, whether on-campus or working remotely. Students should not be unattended in high-risk activities.

Maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

  • Satisfactory Academic Progress must be met to remain eligible for work-study and institutional hire positions.
  • Students must maintain a 2.0 minimum.
  • If a student fails to meet the GPA requirements, they are no longer eligible to work in their student positon (discretion is considered by Career Services and Financial Aid).
  • The supervisor will be notified when grades are posted.
  • Visit the Student Support Services page for resources to support your student employees.

Breaks and Rest Periods

  • Employees shall be allowed a rest period of not less than 10 minutes, on the employer’s time, for each four (4) hours of working time.
  • Rest periods shall be scheduled as near as possible to the midpoint of the work period.
  • No employee shall be required to work more than three hours without a rest period.
  • Where the nature of the work allows employees to take intermittent rest periods equivalent to 10 minutes for each four (4) hours worked, scheduled rest periods are not required.
  • Students working more than five (5) consecutive hours in a continuous shift must take at least a 30 minute unpaid rest period somewhere in the midpoint of their schedule.

Monitoring Hours

The student and supervisor share the responsibility for monitoring the student’s hours to ensure that they do not exceed allowable hours for institutional hire students. Basic rules to monitor include:

  • No more than 69 hours in five (5) rolling months. The 69 hours includes any paid sick leave time submitted for that month
  • No more than 480 hours in six (6) rolling months
  • No more than 1050 hours per year

Note: If a student employee is continuing into the next fiscal year, you need to ensure the 5 and 6 month rules are monitored continuously. 

Payroll Information

Student workers submit timesheets for approval on the 15th and last business day of each month. Supervisors will have until 5 p.m. on the 15th and the last business day each month to approve timesheets.

Sick Leave

Paid sick leave is available for student employees to care for their health and the health of their family members. Student employees authorized uses of paid sick leave include:

  • Employee’s mental or physical illness, injury, or health condition

  • Employee’s preventative care such as medical, dental, or optical appointments, and/or treatment

  • Care of a family member with an illness, injury, health condition, and/or preventative care such as a medical, dental, and/or optical appointment

Definition of Family Members “Family member” is defined as a child or parent (including biological, adopted, foster, step, or legal guardian), a spouse, registered domestic partner, spouse’s parent, grandparent, grandchild, or sibling.


  • Students will accrue 1 hour of sick leave for every 40 hours worked.
  • Leave will be accrued and may be used in increments of .25 of 1 hour (15 minutes).
  • Clark College’s accrual year is January 1st to December 31st.
  • There is no cap on the number of paid sick leave hours accrued in a year.
  • At the end of the accrual year, unused paid sick leave balances of 40 hours or less will carry over to January of the following year. Sick leave hours in excess of a 40 hour balance will be eliminated after December 31st.


  • Student employees report sick leave hours as a separate entry on their timesheets.
  • The entry will be highlighted in green indicating that it is sick leave.
  • Employees will see their sick leave balance on their timesheet.
  • Sick leave will be available the following month in which it is accrued.
  • Paid sick leave hours will be compensated at an employee’s regular rate of pay.
  • Paid sick leave hours will not count towards the calculation of overtime or towards accruing additional sick time.
  • If an employee separates from employment, there will not be a financial or other reimbursement to the employee for accrued, unused paid sick leave at the time of separation.


  • Student employees are responsible for providing reasonable notice to the College as soon as the need for an absence becomes known.
  • When the need for sick leave is foreseen, such as scheduled medical appointments, use of sick leave is subject to supervisor’s approval.
  • For unforeseeable sick leave absences, when possible, employees must notify their supervisor no later than the start of their shift on the day on which the employee is scheduled to work, and each day after, unless there is mutual agreement to do otherwise.
  • If an employee is in a position where relief replacement is necessary if they are absent, they will notify their supervisor at least two (2) hours prior to their scheduled time to report to work.
  • Failure to return to work upon the expiration of the communicated absence or failure to notify the supervisor may be considered voluntary resignation.


  • Employer may request medical verification for an absence that exceeds 3 days.
  • Additionally, Human Resources may require a fitness-for-duty, which is medical documentation from the employee’s health care provider that states that the employee is able to return to work and perform essential functions of their job with or without reasonable accommodation and/or work restrictions.

Volunteer Work

  • The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended, prohibits employers (including schools) from accepting voluntary services from any paid employee.
  • Any student employed, as work-study or institutional hire must be paid for all hours worked.

Summer Work

  • During summer quarter, student employees must either be enrolled in at least six credits or zero credits.
  • If the student employee is enrolled in at least six (6) credits, they cannot work more than 19 hours per week.
  • If the student employee is enrolled in zero (0) credits, they may work up to 40 hours per week during the summer term after filling out an Intent to Enroll Form stating that they will enroll in at least six (6) credits during the fall term. The Intent to Enroll Form may be requested from Career Services.
  • Note: Work Study student employees cannot exceed their award amounts

Workers Compensation

  • The Washington State Department of Labor and Industries provides worker’s compensation for job-related illnesses and injuries.
  • Student employees are covered by this insurance upon employment.
  • Although the doctor or hospital providing treatment initiates the claim, the student must promptly report any work-related illness or injury to their supervisor. Failure to do so can affect the student’s right to benefit.

If approved by the ASCC Student Government Budget Committee, the requestor will be notified and the request will be forwarded to the appropriate approvers, based on funding request amounts, for review and final approval.

Request Denial and Appeal Process

If the requested amount is altered or denied by the ASCC Student Government Budget Committee prior to approval by all needed approvers, the requester has the right to appeal the decision and/or submit an amended proposal to the ASCC Student Government Budget Committee. Please use the One-Time Funding Appeal Form.

Upon submission of the appeal, the ASCC Student Government Budget Committee will review the request and make a final decision.

Use of Funds

It shall be the responsibility of the Director of Student Life to ensure that One-Time Funding Request monies are expended as approved.

Funds must be used as outlined in the approved One-Time Funding proposal. For example, should the ASCC Student Government Budget Committee approve travel for six (6) people at a certain per- person cost, the funds may not be used to fund travel for four (4) people at a higher per-person cost. However, if funding allows for additional people at a lower or equal per-person cost, this would be allowable.

Unused One-Time Funding Request monies will revert to the Fund Balance upon completion of activity payment processing.
