Work Study/Student Employment

Federal Work Study is an employment program funded by the federal government and LCCC. It provides students with part-time jobs to help meet the cost of education. Jobs pay from $7.25 to $8.80 per hour and generally average 8-12 hours per week.
 
If you are no longer interested in Federal Work Study, please notify the Financial Aid Office. If you turn down your award, you may not be allowed to seek on-campus employment later.
 
If you are not eligible for federal work study, you can apply for another type of on-campus job: student employment.

Benefits of Federal Work Study

  • A variety of jobs are available that may work with your class schedule.
  • Federal Work Study income does not affect your financial aid eligibility for next year.
  • You gain valuable work experience and in some cases can even earn cooperative education credit.
  • You can avoid student loan debt by working to pay for your education.
