Students who are employed by the university and receive a salary or a payroll check may drive vehicles while performing duties within the scope of the job for which they are being paid. Students, such as those on scholarship or fellowship, who are not employed by the university, are not allowed to drive state vehicles.
Federal employees working with the university, such as USDA, USDI, USAF, USN, must make requests for federal vehicles from the federal motor pool in Raleigh. If a federal vehicle is not immediately available, then a federal employee contracted to do state business may be allowed to drive a state vehicle until a federal motor pool vehicle is available.
Visiting lecturers, scholars, scientists, and professors with or without appointments, as well as adjunct and emeritus professors may drive state vehicles only if they are currently employed by the university and receive a university payroll check.
Volunteers, persons working for the university, but not receiving a payroll check, may not drive state vehicles according to the state rules and guidelines.[/accordion] [accordion title =”Who do I contact in the event of a vehicle accident or other emergency?”]In an emergency, please dial 911.
