Important information for student pay

From ISU Coronavirus FAQs

I’m a student employee - will I still be working and being paid?

All managers are being asked to consider ways in which work can be done safely remotely from home, or on campus for essential personnel. Student employees should speak with their supervisor about work schedules and/or changes to work assignments or locations.

Additionally, ISU has been authorized to provide 80 hours of advanced sick leave for student and/or temporary employees in the event the employee is sick and/or at home in self-isolation, or unable to work remotely from home.
