What happens if you go over?
I am working two UW jobs and I want to get as much out of them as I possibly can since I am piss poor right now and my 9 credit schedule isn't holding me back. However the 19.5 rule still stands as both jobs combined can't exceed the magic number and I think that is crap. I don't want the school to protect me from myself. Are there any dire consequences if I break this Golden Rule of Student Employment? What are they? Is there a way to file for a personal exception thing so I can get around it?
Thanks. (I also emailed my payroll guy with this question, but I figure you guys will answer faster.)
EDIT: Thanks for the quick replies. It is nice to know that the school is just protecting itself with these rules rather than its student workforce. I always thought it was weird that they would be so concerned with students over-extending themselves. The benefits issue makes more sense.
