Common Policy Questions
Can a student work after graduation?
When can a student who requires a background check begin working?
A student in need of a background check may begin working only after the employer receives the hiring confirmation. It is a good idea to plan ahead and enter the job into the Career Connections Opportunities Board early, to allow enough time for processing the background check.
If a student is not taking a J-term class, can they work 40 hours per week?
Can a student work on campus at PLU if not a PLU student, but enrolled someplace else?
During the summer only, if enrolled at another institution of higher learning for summer and/or fall classes, a student may work at PLU. The dates available are June 1 – August 31.
