Subject: Student Hour Limit - PACE Employers

Attention Student Employer:

You may have recently received an email regarding a change to the limit on student employee hours beginning Jan. 1, 2017. Student employees (without graduate appointments or F or J visas) will be permitted to work 25 hours per week, rather than 20, hours during periods of enrollment, such as fall and spring semesters. The limit for summer semester, if a student is not enrolled, and all academic breaks will remain at 28 hours per week.  This change for student employees includes Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Program to Aid Career Exploration (PACE) students.

Keep in mind the PACE award amounts are not increasing .  For the 2016-2017 academic year, PACE funding permits students to earn no more than $2,430.  That award allows a student being paid $8.10/hour to work 10hrs/week for the entire 15 weeks of the semester.  Often students take a few weeks to find employment or miss out on some hours due to schedule conflicts, etc.  Students can make up those "missed" hours by working up to 20hrs/week during periods of enrollment but never to exceed their entire award amount.  That 20hrs/week is increasing to 25hrs/wk. as of January 1, 2017.  If you have any questions, please let me know.
