Work-study and student assistant positions are challenging real-world opportunities that help students prepare for a career.

Students may work a maximum of 19 hours per week while attending LCC. Open positions are adjusted to meet students' academic schedules whenever possible.

Working in a professional environment encourages students to refine work ethics, advance technological, teamwork, and experiential skills, and improve skills under close supervision of LCC staff and faculty.


We expect our students to be punctual, enthusiastic, and professional, to follow directions, and to be creative and resourceful when unstated work needs to be done. Students are essential to LCC's operations and contribute to the success of the college in ways that are measurable, assessable, and substantial.


What is the difference between a work-study Job and a student job?
Work-Study is need based determined by FAFSA
Student Assistant/Help is not based on financial need
How do I know which one I'm qualified for?
In order to qualify for work-study, you must first complete the FAFSA. The Financial Aid office can tell you if you are eligible for work-study.
If you do not qualify for financial aid, you may still apply for student help (Student Assistant) positions.
