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 in several community service positions. These programs offer students a wonderful opportunity to earn money by working a student job to assist with the cost of education. Additionally, students gain valuable work experience and marketable skills while providing LMC with vital student support.
Eligible students will create a resume with help of the Career and Transfer Center, apply for open positions, and proceed through an interview process with potential supervisors. Students may work a maximum of 20 hours per week while attending classes depending on the student’s need and the department’s budget. These positions do not replace existing staff positions.
Both on- and off-campus positions are available. Off-campus positions provide students with the opportunity to work at various non-profit organizations in the community.
To be eligible to apply for these positions you must complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov, as well as the student employment application. Students will be notified via email of their eligibility within seven days. Student employment applications should be turned in to the Career and Transfer Center located in room D-201/202 on the Napier Avenue Campus.
