Payment for Additional Services or Products Provided by Student or Temporary Employees


Occasionally departments wish to compensate student or temporary employees for services or products that do not relate to their employment with the University. This policy outlines the parameters for such one-time payments.

Applies to: 

Student or temporary employees with active appointments.

Juniper Gardens
Medical Center, Kansas City
Policy Statement: 

Campus departments may utilize the services or purchase the creative products of student and temporary employees by utilizing the additional payment process through Payroll Services with the approval of the Vice Provost for Finance.

This one-time payment process can be utilized only if the services or products are unrelated to the job that the student or temporary employee is performing for the department. Compensation to individuals providing services over a period of time, e.g., camp counselors and website designers, should be handled with appointments to payroll. Some examples of acceptable payments include performances that are not part of the student employee’s academic program and creative products of artwork or graphics.

Exclusions or Special Circumstances: 

This policy does not apply to students who are not KU employees or to faculty/staff with regular appointments. The Policy on Commitment of Time, Conflict of Interest, Consulting, and Other Employment applies to faculty/staff with regular appointments.
