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
. 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.
