Timesheets & Hours

Timesheets are generated for each pay period and distributed to the Department Supervisor.  Students must record their start time, stop time and lunch period on the time sheet.  

A student is not permitted to work more than 20 hours per week during regular enrollment periods for on campus and off campus community service jobs (affiliated with Rider University). A student can work up to 40 hours a week when classes are not in session and during summer recess. Work hours are monitored by individual departments’ staff.

A student employee is not allowed to work during scheduled class time. If a class is canceled, the student must document that class is canceled before s/he can work during the designated time. A student working more than five consecutive hours is entitled to a 30 minute unpaid break. 

If a student is employed during a period of non-attendance (i.e. winter or summer break), the student must show reasonable intent to continue enrollment (such as the upcoming Fall or Spring semester). Pre-registration for the upcoming semester is sufficient proof of intent to attend the next semester.
