Federal Work Study

The Federal Work Study program is a need-based program that provides opportunities for eligible students to earn part-time wages through on-campus employment. Earnings can be used to help pay for the student’s cost of attendance at Lake Land College.

Application & Placement

Students indicate interest in the Federal Work Study Program when completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), but still must apply for a work study position at Lake Land College if interested. The application is located in the student Laker HUB account, under the Financial Aid menu by clicking “Apply for Work Study”.

Each completed application will be reviewed by the Financial Aid Office and forwarded to the appropriate department supervisor for review based on the work positions selected by the student. Students will be contacted by a department supervisor for interview scheduling if selected.


Students are paid the minimum wage rate which is $12.00 per hour. Work Study students normally work between 10-12 hours per week in various departments. Generally, a student will work in between classes if there is a lengthy break or on days when they do not have class. There are no weekend hours and usually no evening hours.
