Student Employee Programs

Lindenwood University employs students through regular part-time and full-time jobs and through the Federal Work Study Program. Jobs are offered at 10, 15, and 20 hours per week for part-time workers, and 40 hours per week for full-time workers. Some student worker opportunities are skill based and others are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Wages vary by position and skill level. Lindenwood’s Student Employee Program operates on a three-tier model. Each tier is designed to serve a particular function and is paid an hourly wage in accordance with that function. Employment lengths vary by position. Lindenwood University is an “at-will” employer and student employees may be released prior to their service end date without cause or notice. Student workers are paid on a bi-weekly payroll cycle and receive their checks through direct deposit. All student workers are required to set up a payment plan with the Business Office within five days of their hire date. Those who fail to do so will not be eligible to participate in the program. To be considered for the Student Employee Program, students must be “unconditionally” admitted into the university, enrolled in classes, and in good standing with the university.
