A student's academic success is Lehigh's first consideration in establishing student workload policies and making exceptions to those policies. Lehigh limits students' paid work to 20 hours per week during the semester. Thus, students' workload should average no more than 20 hours per week during an academic semester. For an exception to this policy to be considered, please use the form above. Once filled out and signed by both the student and work supervisor, please submit to the Dean of Students Office.
