Jobs On Campus With Federal Work Study

Work Study is a need-based, federally funded program that allows eligible students to work in various departments on campus. Lyndon cannot guarantee that every student who receives an offer of Federal Work Study as part of their financial aid package will find a job.  Students are responsible for actively searching out and applying for open positions.

How Do I Qualify for Work Study?

Application for Federal Student Aid by February 15 at FAFSA.gov. In addition to early application, there are four other qualifications in order to be awarded work-study:

  • You must be enrolled at least 6 credits per semester and must be working towards a degree at Lyndon State College.
  • You must qualify on the basis of need. Need is determined by the Financial Aid Office after evaluating your FAFSA.
  • You must be making satisfactory academic progress.
  • If selected, you must complete the federal verification process before beginning work.

Failure to turn in necessary documents when requested may result in loss of work-study eligibility. You will receive notification on whether or not you are eligible for work-study on your Financial Aid Award Letter/Email Notification. If your award package does not include a work-study amount, you are not eligible.

What Forms Do I Need To Fill Out?

Your work-study contract must be signed by both you and your supervisor before you are allowed to work. If you have never worked under the Work-Study program at LSC, you must complete an I-9 and W-4 form with your supervisor.
