The student worker 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.

This program enable students to offset college expenses while providing opportunities for them to expand their knowledge base and skill set.

“I feel like Lindenwood's Student Worker Program makes job training its number one priority. They are very dedicated to making sure we understand and can perform our jobs to the very best of our ability.”
Federal Work Study
The Federal Work Study positions are for undergraduate students who work 10 hours per week for 36 weeks. 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 qualifies for the Federal Work Study Program. A qualification for the Program is not a guarantee of 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
- Are 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, proceeding 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.
After meeting the requirements to be in the program, the Student Worker Office will place the candidate in the position they have chosen. If they do not meet the requirements for the position chosen, or their choice is already occupied, candidates may be placed in a position not previously chosen by the candidate. Please note, some of the positions require an interview before a candidate will be selected.
