In 2023, a new student classification system was implemented with defined job functions, families, and classifications based on job duties and overall level of responsibility. The intent of the classification system is to provide a more accurate title and description while allowing the opportunity to progress during one’s student employment at the university. The progression is an intersection between the needs of the department and the student employee. The selected classification is determined by the appropriate job family and the position's level of responsibility. It is the expectation that each student position be assigned to the classification that is most accurate. Departments may also use alternate titles when recruiting and/or differentiating roles in their areas. 

More information on student employment can be found on the Student Employment website. For more information on the student classification system, please contact Compensation and Classification. For more information on student employment, please contact University Workforce Operations - Student Employment
