Social Security and Medicare Tax Withholding for Student Employees

The IRS provides an exemption from Social Security and Medicare taxes for students employed at TCNJ who are enrolled at least half-time at the undergraduate or graduate level.  This exemption does not apply to an otherwise eligible student not enrolled in classes during summer or breaks of more than five weeks.  Therefore, students not enrolled in classes at the College during the summer, but employed on campus, will have Social Security (6.2%) and Medicare (1.45%) taxes withheld  from their summer paychecks.
