Students may be considered "on leave" as follows:

  • Undergraduates - For one quarter immediately following a quarter in which the student was enrolled for at least 6 academic credits (this includes summer quarter).

JOB REQUIREMENTS

It is expected that you will attend any orientations and/or training sessions required for your position. You will be paid your normal hourly rate for attendance at these required sessions.
Your appointment classifies you as an Academic Student Employee (ASE) and is governed by a contract between the University of Washington and UAW Local 4121, which is at this website. Both you and the University of Washington are bound by the terms of this contract, so it is important for you to familiarize yourself with it. If you haven’t already done so, you will be offered an opportunity to join UAW Local 4121 and, as a member, you will pay dues each pay period. If you should choose not to become a member, the contract requires that you pay a monthly service fee.

As a University of Washington student you are eligible to enroll in the Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan. Information on this plan.
