The total hours worked determines how many units a student qualifies for. If the student’s job is related to their major, the most units that can be earned in one semester are 4.
- Working 75 to 149 hours total for the semester would equal 1 unit.
- 150 to 224 hours total would equal 2 units.
- 225 to 299 hours total would equal 3 units.
- 300 + hours total would equal 4 units.
If the student’s job is unrelated to their major and the student is earning General units, the most a student can get for the semester is 3 units. The same schedule applies as above.
For Internship or Volunteer positions, the total hours worked determines the number of units a student can qualify for:
- Working 60 to 119 hours total earns the student one 1 unit.
- 120 to 179 hours total earns 2 units.
- 180 to 239 hours total earns 3 units.
- 240 + hours total earns 4 units.
If the student’s job is in or related to their declared major, the student will earn units in that major. Skills learned must be directly applicable to the major.
