Redefining the Classroom

Student Employment

LSSU hires students for many jobs on campus. There are opportunities for employment for all students, whether or not you are eligible for Work-Study. For more information, visit the LSSU Human Resources website.

Federal College Work-Study provides jobs for undergraduates with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay educational expenses. Eligibility is based on the results of the FAFSA and you will be informed of your award along with any other types of aid on your award notification.

The average Work-Study award is $1,500 per academic year or $750 per semester. A student should work approximately 8 hours per week to earn this amount over the two-semester academic year.

Your Work-Study pay rate will be at least the current federal minimum wage, but may be higher, depending on the type of work you do and the skills required. If you are an undergraduate, you will be paid by the hour. Students are paid every other Friday.
