Update to Student Help Hiring Provisions

Below are updates to the existing Student Help hiring guidelines:

  • New recruitment’s for all Student Help positions are still suspended until further notice, unless approved by the school/college/division Dean or Vice Chancellor
  • Deans and Vice Chancellors now have delegation to determine if a student position should be considered essential

All approved recruitment may continue to be posted through the UW Admin Dashboard. We will be updating our job requisitions to require certification that Dean or Vice Chancellor approval has been granted prior to posting any new recruitment. We will continue to allow for hiring through the re-deployment process for immediate needs, which can still be submitted through the UW Admin Dashboard.  This change has been made in order to better accommodate those units who rely heavily on student employees for potential summer or upcoming fall needs. These provisions do not change the existing guidance on hiring for Graduate Assistants in TA/RA/PA/Fellowship roles.

Please let our team know if you have any questions. Otherwise, we have created a COVID19 Updates section on our homepage (https://studentjobs.wisc.edu/), should you wish to keep an eye on Student Jobs updates all in one spot.
