Hiring Undergraduate Students

Students must be enrolled in classes to be hired under the this classification. The rate of pay varies from $14.50 to $28.00 per hour and should correspond to the duties assigned. A student worker may work up to 25 hours per week during the Fall and Spring semesters, and up to 35 hours per week during Summer Session, Winter Session, and Spring Break. In the event a student worker holds more than one student worker position, the total hours worked per week in all jobs are subject to the maximum work hours set forth above. [Student workers who are F-1 or J-1 visa holders are limited to 20 hours per week during the Fall and Spring semesters, and up to 35 hours per week during Summer Session, Winter Session, and Spring Break.]

It is the responsibility of the Student and their Supervisor to make sure the maximum allowable work hours are not exceeded.

To initiate a student hire, please print and fill out the appropriate New Hire Request Form and submit it to the Business Center. This form is to be filled out by the student’s Supervisor and must be submitted BEFORE the student begins working.

Hiring Graduate Students

To hire a Graduate Teaching Assistant, please contact Pennie Rabago for further assistance. Graduate Research Assistants can be hired on a semester by semester basis during the academic year, or over Summer Session for supplemental compensation. Please contact the MCEEB Business Center to coordinate payment.

Hiring Staff

A staff position description must be drafted and then posted for a minimum of seven days. It is required by law that the University of Arizona provide equal employment opportunity to all, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or genetic information. It is further required by law that we take affirmative action in all employment matters to ensure that our policies and practices are, in fact, nondiscriminatory.




You may be reimbursed provided your purchase falls within established University guidelines. Please check with the Business Center prior to making a purchase to prevent delays in the reimbursement process. Original, itemized receipts are required and must be submitted to the Business Center within ten days of purchase. Receipts received by Accounts Payable more than 60 days after the purchase date will be classified as taxable income.


Please contact the Business Center PRIOR to issuing an invitation to a technical consultant, guest speaker, or other non-employee to whom you plan on offering expense reimbursement in order to ensure that such payment will be allowed under University policy. Per UA policy, individuals cannot pay foreign visitors (or make payments on their behalf) with personal funds. All reimbursements to foreign visitors must be paid by UA directly to the visitor or an appropriate third party vendor. Job candidates can be reimbursed for interview expenses only if there is an existing job posting to which they’ve applied.


Our Department is home to a diverse community whose members conduct research worldwide.  If you’re planning to travel internationally, please check the U.S. Department of State website to verify if there's a travel warning in your destination country.  If so, you will need to complete travel authorizations well in advance of your departure.

The Interim Policy for International Travel Safety and Compliance requires advance review and approval of University travel to areas with a travel warning in effect.  The Interim Policy also specifies that the Provost may authorize or restrict University travel to specific regions within a travel warning country.
