Work and Learn (Undergraduate Students)

Work and Learn is a program that resident students may participate in to obtain a reduction in their University costs.  Participation in this program is voluntary and a privilege. The purpose of the program is to build a sense of individual responsibility and dependability in the student.  Students who sign up for the program are stating that they are willing to work in a determined job for the University, and they are expected to honor this commitment. 

The Work and Learn program may not be appropriate for all students.  Students who have extra commitments such as an excessive class load, an outside job, or sports commitments should consider not participating in Work and Learn as it is difficult to find the time and a job that fits the student’s needs.  Students who do not fulfill their Work and Learn contract will be removed from the program and must make arrangements to pay for the remainder of their charges.

Work and Learn also exposes students to volunteer agencies and social service programs in the local community. This enables students to be involved in hands-on experiences outside their normal disciplines.  The program also provides diverse opportunities that enhance students’ educational backgrounds and broaden their range of marketable talents.

Competition for jobs is fierce, and positions are given on a first-come, first-served basis.  Not all students are eligible for assignment to every position.  For many jobs, the student must meet specific criteria in order to be accepted.

Student Responsibilities: 

NOTE: Failure to properly perform duties and responsibilities is grounds for removal from the Work and Learn Program at Lindenwood University.
