Student Worker: Health Laboratory Assistant (Federal Work Study ONLY)

Student Worker and Federal Work Study positions are open to all students enrolled in at least 6 credit hours per semester.  Returning students must have a 2.0 accumulative GPA.  New students do not have a GPA requirement.  

On-campus student employment may be paid from Federal Work Study funds or the college’s general operating budget.  And, while student workers are paid the same regardless of funding source, some positions are only budgeted to be paid from Federal Work Study funds and are noted to be ‘Federal Work Study Only’.  In this instance, the students applying for these positions must also have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and be eligible to receive financial aid in the form of Federal Work Study.  The FAFSA is completed online and generally only takes less than an hour to complete.  If you have concerns or questions about the FAFSA process and this is preventing you from applying for on-campus employment, please review the Financial Aid Office's website or contact the Financial Aid Office at 440-525-7070. 

Some student worker positions are noted to be 'Student Worker OR Federal Work Study' and could be paid out of the college’s general operating budget if the student doesn’t qualify for Federal Work Study funds.  Even though the college may have the funds available to pay the student workers in these positions, we ask that students selected for these positions complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to employment.  This helps the college because it may be possible to replace budgeted funds with federal dollars.
