5.1 Student Appointments

Manual: Exemption Procedures

Subsection: Student Appointment Exemptions

Student Appointments are typically part-time, non-status appointments and considered exempt from Civil Service Regulations.   To be eligible for a Student Appointment, a student must be enrolled for at least one-half of the normal workload of a regularly enrolled full-time student at an institution served by the University System, unless an exception is approved by the Executive Director prior to the appointment start date.  Requests for exceptions shall fully explain the reasons for the request, such as graduating senior with only a limited number of hours remaining to meet graduation requirements, hardship, outside responsibilities, or other similar justification.  A Request for Student Appointment Exception form shall be completed, signed by the DER, and sent to the University System Office for approval.  See Form 5.1a

Please refer to the section 250.70(e) of the Illinois Administrative Code (80 Ill. Adm. Code §250.70(e))  for additional guidelines related to Student Appointments.
