11. Full-Time Student Employment Restrictions

A. Notification of Employment

If any student is working on- or off-campus, for any number of hours, the student must notify the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. The student has an obligation to update the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs any time his or her employment changes. Violation of this policy may result in disciplinary action, an inability to work on the Jacksonville University campus, and/or a report to the Character and Fitness Committee of the Board of Bar Examiners.

B. First-Year Students

  1. Limit on Employment. First-year students who are enrolled full-time may not work more than 20 hours in any week. If the student subject to this restriction has more than one employer, the
    limitations are cumulative, which means that a student cannot work more than a total of 20 hours per week.
  2. Petition for Exception. The College of Law recognizes that there are situations in which students may need to seek employment beyond 20 hours a week. In these instances, the student should notify the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and request an exception. The Associate Dean of Academic Affairs will consider such requests, so long as there are no academic or other concerns. This policy applies to employment on and off campus and applies to any type of employment for which a student receives remuneration.
  3. Employment at the College of Law. While the limitations on work described above do not apply to periods when classes are not in session, such as breaks between semesters or a summer session when a student is not enrolled in classes, on-campus employment by the College of Law is always limited to 20 hours unless advance approval is obtained from the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.
