Programs for Engaging Students in Experiential Learning
University guidelines limit the number of hours an undergraduate or graduate student may work to 25 hours in any given workweek (Monday – Sunday). Exceptions may be permitted when students participate in a program that provides an educational experience as approved by the Experiential Program Review Board. If you believe your department offers this type opportunity, then please download and complete the Experiential Program Request Form and submit via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Requests are reviewed on the second Tuesday of each month by an Experiential Program Review Board, made up of representatives of HR, ORSP, Financial Aid, Outreach, Provost's Office, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, the University Research Board, and other faculty members. The Program Review Board's decisions will be communicated with the contact provided on the request form. Annual reviews are required.
