Student Athlete Employment
All earnings from summer employment must be at a rate of pay that is comparable with the going rate, in that locale, for the type of work performed.
You should be paid by check (not cash) for the hours that you actually worked. (Exceptions: Work such as babysitting, lawn work, etc.)
You cannot have transportation to and from work provided by your employer unless transportation is provided to all employees.
Your employer cannot provide you with any benefit or privilege that is not provided to all employees (e.g., meals, cars, entertainment at home, vacation trips, water skiing, etc.). One exception: A representative of the University of San Diego's athletics interests (which would include your summer employer) is permitted to provide a student-athlete with an occasional home meal. The meal must be at the representative's home and may not be in a restaurant and must be on an infrequent basis (i.e., once every few months). In addition, the representative is permitted to provide you with transportation for the sole purpose of attending this occasional home meal.
You can be employed by a community agency or club to teach sport skills as long as you have other duties and responsibilities.
Fee for lesson instruction: A student athlete may receive compensation for teaching or coaching sport skills or techniques in his or her sport on a fee-for-lesson basis, provided:
(a) Institutional facilities are not used;
(b) Playing lessons shall not be permitted;
(c) The institution obtains and keeps on file documentation of the recipient of the lesson(s) and the fee for the lesson(s) provided during any time of the year; and
(d) The compensation is paid by the lesson recipient (or the recipient's family) and not another individual or entity.
(e) Instruction to each individual is comparable to the instruction that would be provided during a private lesson when the instruction involves more than one individual at a time.
(f) The student-athlete does not use his or her name, picture or appearance to promote or advertise the availability of fee-for-lesson sessions.
Academic Year Employment
Student-athletes are allowed to receive employment earnings during the academic year. However, it is imperative that you keep in mind the specific guidelines that must be followed in the event that you decide to obtain on- or off-campus employment during the academic year.
All earnings from academic year employment must be at a rate of pay that is commensurate with the going rate for the type of work performed.
You must be academically eligible in order to seek term-time employment.
You may work off-campus or on-campus, but not within the athletics department or in a facility owned or operated by the athletics department.
