INSTITUTIONAL WORK-STUDY

The Institutional Work-Study Program provides

on-campus employment to students who are

ineligible for the federal work-study program.

Funding is provided solely by the College. Since any

Lycoming student can seek employment through this

program, it will not appear on the award notification.

What jobs are available?

A variety of work-study positions are available. In

addition to the usual manual and clerical-type positions,

there are some positions

that require special skills. Most

academic departments and many administrative offices

employ work-study students yearly. Major campus

employers include the cafeteria, buildings and grounds,

the library and the recreation center.

How do I find a job?

The Financial Aid Office will not place you directly

in a job. The College maintains a work-study job

board at

http://www.lycoming.edu/financialAid/

seJobBoard.aspx

. The job board is updated daily as

the Financial Aid Office becomes aware of vacant

positions. You can begin seeking employment when

you arrive in the fall. As you might expect, securing

more “desirable” positions is a very competitive

process; therefore, you should begin the job search

immediately upon arrival to the campus. You may

interview with any number of supervisors in order to

obtain a job commitment.

As with any job, the interview provides the supervisor

with an opportunity to assess your aptitude,

availability and general “fit” for the job.
