Student Employment at Lower Columbia College
We appreciate our student assistants!
Work-study and student assistant positions are challenging real-world opportunities that help students prepare for a career.
Students may work a maximum of 19 hours per week while attending LCC. Open positions are adjusted to meet students' academic schedules whenever possible.
Working in a professional environment encourages students to refine work ethics, advance technological, teamwork, and experiential skills, and improve skills under close supervision of LCC staff and faculty.
We expect our students to be punctual, enthusiastic, and professional, to follow directions, and to be creative and resourceful when unstated work needs to be done. Students are essential to LCC's operations and contribute to the success of the college in ways that are measurable, assessable, and substantial.
