Student Services and Policies

Student Employment

Campus employment is available to students from funds provided in regular departmental budgets and the Federal Work-Study Program. Budget jobs are secured by contacting Career Services or the department in which the student desires to work. The Federal Work-Study Program is a joint effort by the federal government and the university to provide jobs for students who need financial assistance to attend college. Off-campus jobs are listed in Career Services. Students and alumni may receive further information on off-campus employment in Career Services, AD 229.

Only full-time students will be approved for campus employment as budget student workers. A full-time student retains that status for student employment during the student's holiday, summer and other vacation periods. During the last semester prior to graduating, a student will be considered to be full-time for purposes of employment if the student schedules all courses required for graduation. Full-time high school students and full-time students attending a college or university other than LSUS are eligible for employment by LSUS; however, preference is to be given to hiring LSUS students when available. During the fall and spring semesters, students are permitted to work up to 20 hours per week. Student employees may be terminated at any time.

Federal I-9 forms (Employment Eligibility Verification) must be completed within three days of employment per federal law. These forms are to be completed in the Human Resources Office, AD 109.
