Bridge Student Assistants (Summer ONLY): 

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Code Section 3121(b) (10) excludes services performed by students employed by the university from Social Security and Medicare (FICA) coverage while actively enrolled as a student. 

This student exemption does not apply to services performed by an individual who is not enrolled in classes during breaks of more than five weeks, including summer breaks of more than five weeks.  

Employment appointments during “break” periods that do not qualify for the student FICA exemption are appointed to the non-represented “bridge” classification. 

Appointments to this classification require that the student pay 7.5% of all earnings into the Department of Personnel Administration Part-time, Seasonal and Temporary (DPA PST) retirement plan.  Additionally, student earnings are subject to Medicare taxes, currently 1.45% of all earnings.

Students may qualify to work as a Bridge Student Assistant during the summer onlyStudents are not eligible to work in any student classification during the academic year unless they are enrolled with the minimum unit (6 unit undergrad/4 unit grad) requirements.

To qualify as a Bridge Student Assistant, the student must have been enrolled as a CSU student the previous spring semester with the required GPA and units, is currently not enrolled or enrolled in less than the required units, AND intends to enroll the following fall semester.

  • Bridge Student Assistants not enrolled in any classes may work up to 40 hours per week; regardless of the number of jobs held.
  • Bridge Student Assistants enrolled in less than 6.0 units (Undergrad) or 4.0 units (Graduate) may work up to 20 hours per week, regardless of the number of jobs held.
