The student employee office is dedicated to meeting the needs of the university as well as the needs of the students. Our students play an integral part in many university departments. In return for this service, student workers are given the opportunity to expand their knowledge base and build new skills. Currently the student employee program employs about 1,000 students across two campuses. The program enables students to offset college expenses while providing them with opportunities to expand their knowledge base and skill set.
All undergraduate, graduate, and federal work study students are able to participate in the student employee program pending they meet the necessary eligibility requirements and are selected to do so. These requirements are ongoing and students will be immediately released from their position should they fail to meet all requirements.
To be Eligible:
- Students must be “unconditionally” admitted to the university.
- Students must be actively enrolled in classes.
- Students must be in good standing with the university:
- Any student placed on academic probation or social probation does not qualify to participate in the program. The student may reapply to the program once the probation is removed.
- Students must be in good financial standing with the university, and maintain their LU business account throughout their employment as a student worker.
Lindenwood University employs students through regular part-time and full-time positions and through the Federal Work Study Program.
Students work according to the calendar cycle which is based on the university fiscal year (July 1- June 30).
Pay will begin and end based on these dates:
|Number of Weeks||Calendar Cycle|
|36||August 15 - May 15|
|40||August 1 - May 31|
|52||July 1 - June 30|

Federal Work Study
Federal Work Study students apply for FAFSA through the Financial Aid Office and receive an EFC (Expected Family Contribution) number. If the number is low enough, as determined by the federal guidelines, the student then qualifies for the Federal Work Study Program. A qualification for the program does not guarantee a placement within the Federal Work Study Program.
To qualify for the program, a student must:
- Demonstrate financial need
- Have filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the Lindenwood University priority deadline
- Indicate an interest in part-time work
- Be enrolled and admitted to Lindenwood University
Non-Federal Work Program
If you have not received a Federal Work Study award, you may still work in a campus position that does not require a FAFSA or financial need. Lindenwood University hires candidates at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
To be considered for the open positions designated for non-work study candidates, you must be “unconditionally” admitted into Lindenwood University, and you must have attended classes in the prior term or the term for which you are applying.
Employment lengths vary by position. Lindenwood University is an “at-will” employer and student employees may be terminated prior to their service end date without cause or notice.
If you meet the requirements to be in the program, you may complete a student worker application through our career opportunities website. Your application and documents will then be reviewed by the respective hiring supervisor. If the hiring supervisor feels an interview is warranted, they will then contact the candidate directly. All hires are determined by the respective hiring supervisor pending confirmation that the student meets all program eligibility requirements.
