Federal Work-Study is a need-based federal program that provides students with employment opportunities, both on- and off-campus, to assist with educational expenses. Students must meet the basic eligibility requirements to receive these funds. To determine the amount of Federal Work-Study awarded, students can access their myLCC account.
Once awarded, the student must apply online to posted positions in order to secure employment. Receiving a Work-Study award does not guarantee employment at Lansing Community College or at authorized off-campus employers. Student applicants are hired based on their skills and abilities related to each job.
After being hired, students work to earn the Work-Study funds. The earnings are paid to the student bi-weekly. Students can earn up to the amount awarded. If the student earnings exceed the amount awarded, the hiring department will determine if department funds are available to retain the student and continue their employment.
