Student FAQ

Question:

Are the seminars open to all students or just those in work-study positions? 

Answer:

All students—first year, sophomore, juniors, and seniors—can attend any seminar.  

Question:

Is there a limit on how many seminars I can attend?

Answer:

There is no limit unless you are seeking to be paid to attend.  The maximum number of Professional Develop Seminars a student can be paid to attend each year is four, even if they have more than one work-study position.

Question:

If I want to count a seminar as job training (and be paid) but I have more than one work-study position on campus, from which supervisor do I seek permission?  

Answer:

You should ask your primary supervisor, defined as wherever the most hours are clocked.  

Question:

Is being an RA considered work-study?

Answer:

No, it is not. But some RAs have work-study positions.

Question:

What if I sign up for a seminar and then cannot attend?  

Answer:

When you receive an email confirming your registration, please respond (beyondthebubble@luther.edu), indicating your plans have changed and you have to cancel.  In many seminars, registration is limited. We appreciate your cancellation notice so another student can attend in your place.

Will there be new sessions offered in the future?  

Answer:
