Work Schedule

Supervisors usually prefer to hire students with time available in at least two- or three-hour blocks. The actual number of hours you work, however, will depend on your availability and the needs of your employer.

  • You may not work during scheduled class time.
  • You must take a half-hour unpaid break if working over 6 consecutive hours.
  • Official BU policy, Restrictions on Student Work Hours, outlines how many hours per week you may work.
