Online Application Process

Welcome to Lawson State Community College’s online application process.  The college only accepts applications for current open positions or continuous postings/applicant pools. We encourage you to complete a Job Interest Card to receive emails when vacancies occur. 

Applicants must meet the minimum qualifications and must submit a complete application packet through the online application system to be considered.
 A complete application packet consists of the following:

  • An online application 
  • Current resumé
  • Copy of  unofficial college transcripts (Transcript must confirm applicant meets educational requirements.)  

    Application materials must provide documentation that the applicant meets all minimum qualifications.

    Applicants who fail to submit all required information will be disqualified.  Only complete applications received during the period of the announcement will be considered.  In accordance with Alabama Community College System Policy and guidelines, the applicant chosen for employment will be required to sign a consent form for a criminal background check.  Employment will be contingent upon the receipt of a clearance notification from the criminal background check. Finalist will be required to provide employment verification letters. The finalist selected to fill the position will be required to submit official transcripts for all degrees awarded. Official Transcripts must be sent directly to the Office of Human Resources at Lawson State Community College from the institution(s) granting credits.

    Applicants must travel at their own expense.
