Federal Work Study

The Federal Work Study Program at South Louisiana Community College affords students the opportunity to have an outstanding educational experience while earning compensation.  The focus of the program is to provide students the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in a professional office environment.  Working on campus may provide a more flexible schedule than an off-campus employment. It also affords students the chance to be more involved in campus activities as well as the opportunity to build on-campus relationships with a wider group of people including faculty, staff and administration.   The experience is designed to enable students to develop transferrable work talents which will benefit them in their future career. 

By participating in the program, Federal Work Study students will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to improve future employability.   Topics to be covered in the program include:  professionalism, punctuality, proper attire, outstanding customer service, confidentiality, and workplace etiquette. 

Federal Work Study provides opportunities for students to also work in Community Service positions.  Roughly seven-percent of our positions represent opportunities that include working as tutors, assistants, and/or mentors in the Early College Academy located on the Lafayette Campus.

Effective Summer 2015, students eligible to participate in the FWS program will be notified by email (sent to @my.solacc.edu address).  Students must complete the online employment application (link to the application is on the email) to be considered for employment.  After completing the application, students may contact the hiring supervisor for any of the departments shown below to express an interest in working in that department and request an interview.  If a student is selected for an interview, s/he must print the email notification and take it to the interview.
