On-Campus Positions

Please see the Lebanon Valley College employer page in Handshake for a comprehensive list of all departments that are hiring student employee positions. 


All students at Lebanon Valley College are eligible to work on campus, however, employers are encouraged to hire students with Federal Work-Study awards.

Policies for individual departments are made at the discretion of the supervisor. There are, however, several general guidelines that every student employee should be aware of:


Dress codes are dependent on the work required and are determined by the supervisor. Students should always use good hygiene and maintain a well-groomed appearance.


Offices that utilize student employees depend on them to do the assigned work. Students who accept a position as a student employee have a responsibility to their employer to work the arranged hours. The following guidelines should be observed:

  • Be on time for work.
  • If you must be late or absent, inform your supervisor immediately.
  • In an emergency situation, call your supervisor as soon as possible.
  • Follow the procedure for locating a substitute employee if such a policy exists.
  • Makeup time for excused absences is at the discretion of the supervisor.
  • Supervisors may dismiss a student for incurring unexcused absences or lateness.


Student employees may have access to sensitive material. It is imperative that confidentiality and discretion are maintained at all times. Any breach of confidentiality may be cause for immediate dismissal from employment. You should not:

  • discuss departmental issues outside of the department
  • discuss information about other students
  • remove or reproduce files for use outside the workplace

Student employees are also expected to be completely accurate with their timesheets. Misreporting of hours on a timesheet may be cause for immediate dismissal from employment. Individual departments may expand on this as necessary. Confidentiality statements are available in the Payroll Office. Confidentiality Form

Public Relations

Student employees are representatives of the college. It is important to remember this when dealing with members or visitors to the campus community. Follow the directions of your supervisor when dealing with visitors to your department.


Training may be informal sessions during your scheduled hours or it may be formal, arranged sessions held at scheduled times during the year. Supervisors are responsible for providing adequate training to student employees. Student employees are responsible for attending training sessions and participating fully in the learning process. It is essential that students are competent in their positions.
