Student Employee Program

What is the Student Employee Program?

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 employees are given the opportunity to expand their knowledge base and build new skills. Currently, the student employee program employs about 400 students across the St Charles campus.

What do student employees do?

The Student Employee Office offers Lindenwood students meaningful work experiences through a variety of positions across the Saint Charles campus. Being a student employee is a great way to gain valuable work experience to be successful after graduation and to offset college expenses.

What are the requirements to be a student employee?

  1. Students being actively enrolled. Students must be enrolled for the current term or those seeking employment over the summer must be enrolled for the upcoming term (QTR or SEM).
  2. Students paying their balances. Students are required to make arrangements with the SFS office to pay their balances.
  3. Students maintaining good academic standing with the University. Undergraduate students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 and graduate students a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
  4. Students maintaining good social standing with the University. Students are required to follow all university policies while residing on campus, engaging in university programs or activities, or while present on university-owned property.

How do I get a student employee position?

  • Open student employee positions can be found by clicking on Student Employee Jobs above. See updates throughout the school year. 
  • All applications MUST include a resume and cover letter.

What happens after I apply?

Once an application is submitted, the hiring manager for a position will review each application and contact the best-qualified applicants over the phone or through email for a possible interview or for a job offer. Once the hiring manager sends a hire form to the Human Resources Department, the applicant will receive an email regarding the on-boarding process as well as information about a mandatory orientation date for the applicant to attend prior to starting his or her position.

What if I am an international student?

As an international student on an F-1 visa, you are allowed to work up to 20 hours per week on campus. In order to start working, you will need to apply for a U.S social security number. Once you get hired into an on-campus position, you will need to visit the Office of International Students and Scholars to start the process of applying for a social security number. The process takes between 2 to 4 weeks. Please note that you cannot start working until you have a U.S social security number.
