Under Hours Exception and On-campus Employment:

The Reduced Course Load (RCL) is not sufficient for under hours exceptions for purposes of on-campus employment. The intent of the RCL form is for immigration purposes only. An additional memo from the academic advisor or graduate program coordinator is needed to submit to the student employment or graduate assistantship offices, as applicable, to detail the need to be under hours at the end of the program. For more information related to this memo, please contact student employment or the graduate assistantship office.
