Work Study

This program is designed to assist students who are in need of employment to pursue their education. Work is performed on campus and off campus. The student may work up to 19 hours per week and may not be paid less than minimum wage depending upon the amount of  his or her work study award.


Work Study Application

Priority is given to students with the lowest EFC, determined by information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), who also receive Federal Pell Grants on a first-come, first serve basis. There is no guarantee that every eligible student will receive or renew a work-study award, so it is important to apply early to have a better chance of receiving a job. Federal Work-Study awards are based on the availability of Campus-Based funds at Lawson State.
(The Application for College Work Study may also be obtained in the Student Financial Services office on either the Bessemer or the Birmingham campus)  


After receiving an assignment students must complete the following forms required prior to beginning work:
