The Work Study Program is a federally and institutionally funded financial aid program that provides employment opportunities for students to work on campus, as well as various non-profit organizations in the community. These programs offer students a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience and marketable skills while providing LMC with vital student support.

To be eligible to apply for these positions you must complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov, as well as the Student Employment Application. You must be in a degree-seeking program, enrolled in school at least half-time, and have a complete financial aid file. Student employment applications are submitted to the Career and Transfer Center located in room D-201/202 on the Napier Avenue Campus.

You will be required to create a resume with help from the Career and Transfer Center. You can then apply for open positions and participate in the interview process if selected for an opening. Applying for a position does not guarantee employment at Lake Michigan College or at authorized off-campus employers. Student employees are hired based on skills and abilities.

The amount of the work study award is determined based on your entire financial aid package and can be affected by other types of aid, such as student loans. If hired, you earn work study funds by working and will be paid bi-weekly in a paycheck. You may work a maximum of 20 hours per week, but how many hours you work will depend on the needs of the department, the department’s budget, and how much work study you are awarded in your financial aid package.

More information regarding the federal or institutional work study program can be found in the Work Study Handbook.
