Frequently Asked Questions Employment

Does the time spent on the Student Temporary Employment Program count towards career tenure? time-in-grade?

No. The time does not count towards career tenure because the 3-year period of service required to obtain career tenure must begin and end with non-temporary employment in the competitive service. However, the time spent on the student temporary appointment would be creditable towards any time in grade calculation. See 5 CFR § 315.201.
