For most of our students, having a job on campus is part of the Luther experience. Whether planting flowers with our groundskeepers or working in the cafeteria, we hope students find their position to be a valuable way to serve the Luther community, gain important work experience and earn money toward tuition and other expenses. Students will also garner valuable professional and personal skills for life after college through Luther's "Beyond the Bubble" program.
Students will be notified of their work eligibility on their financial aid award letter.
Each student at Luther College has included in their financial aid award the opportunity for engagement in a work-study position. Most first-year students are assigned work-study positions in dining services, facilities, or grounds. However, positions for first year students are available in a number of other areas including Communications, academics, Library and Information Systems, and others.
To assist in the process of matching students with positions, students are able to fill out a short form that provides information describing interests, experiences, and other information. Students are not required to complete this form to receive a work-study assignment.
