Student employees who are enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours in fall or spring semesters and 3 credit hours in the summer) are exempt from paying FICA taxes. However, any student who is also a full-time employee of the university is not exempt from paying FICA tax. In this situation, the individual's major function is deemed to be that of a full-time employee, and therefore is not exempt.
