COVID-19: Essential Information

General Summer Employment Information

While we understand students and supervisors are excited to move forward with the student summer employment process, SEO is still awaiting confirmed details for many aspects of the capacity of campus for summer 2021.  We will update information as it becomes available.

Summer 2021 Timeline of Important Dates

Remote Work- Similar to the Academic Year, any position that can work remotely must continue to do so for the summer.  Students are eligible to work remotely as long as they are located within the United States, work from international locations is not permissible.  Faculty who are interested in internationally located Research Assistants should contact URO for non-employment options.

Summer Hiring Proposals are due by May 3rd.

On Campus Work- Student employees may work in person if the job requires on site work and cannot be completed remotely.  Departments should work with their VP to identify these positions.

Similar to other Staff, students may live locally and travel to campus for approved work while following all campus COVID safety guidelines.

Summer Hiring Proposals are due by May 3rd.

On Campus Housing- Housing will only be available for students who are employed in approved on campus work and working 30 or more hours per week.  Student employees in remote eligible positions are not eligible for housing at this time.

More information regarding housing dates and polciies will be available shortly.

Dining- DIning will be avialable to students living on campus.  More information regardining dining plans will be updated as soon as it is available.
