Student Summer Appointments/Non-UWF Students

The summer semester is right around the corner. Departments who intend to work students not enrolled for the summer semester should note the following:

  • Student employees who were enrolled and worked as a student employee in the spring semester and are returning to classes in the fall, but are not enrolled during the summer, may continue in "student status" during the summer semester for Student Assistant positions. Departments do not need to convert them to an OPS staff position.
  • Students who are enrolled at another institution may work at UWF as a Non-UWF Student. Documentation of enrollment/status is required and must be updated each semester.

If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Lohr at 850-474-2608 or Carol Gentry at 850-474-2605.
