    Code of Conduct


    This federally-funded employment program is awarded to students who demonstrate financial need. A work study award is an option to work, not a requirement or a guaranteed job. If students receive work study as part of their financial aid award, they may apply for work study jobs and are eligible to earn up to the amount of their work study award.  
  • Institutional Student Employees
    These employees are funded through college funds allocated to the academic departments or administrative offices. This type of employment is not based on financial need, and any Lorain County Community College or University Partnership student may work under this program.

All student employees must be enrolled in classes to be eligible.

Instructions for applying for Student Worker Positions


  1. Create a username, password and profile in LCCC Career Link (LCCC job board) 
  2. Fill out a Student Worker Employment Application, save it to your computer or flash drive as “student application-your name” under the “MANAGE MY RESUME” tab. (We realize this is an application, not a resume, but this is the only option available) 
  3. Your application will be approved within 24 hours (during LCCC business hours)
  4. Upon approval, you will be able to apply to any open student employment position and your application will be immediately forwarded to the department manager for that posting. All student job postings begin with “LCCC/department name”. 
    • Under job types, choose “student employment” and then SEARCH 
    • Review the open positions 
    • When applying, the system asks for a cover letter which is not required for student positions. However, the system does require something to be added to this field. Please copy and paste the following “Attached is my student application. Please consider me for the open student position in your department”.
