STEP Lab Positions

The Office of STEP Support (OSS) is responsible for managing the STEP Lab in the library and in other STEP Labs on campus. To qualify, applicants must be an undergraduate or graduate student who is currently enrolled full time in courses at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Positions fill quickly, but applications are always accepted throughout the semester.

When positions are available to work for STEP or OSS, they will be posted to Career Services.

Student Employment: Federal Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study program provides jobs on or off campus to eligible undergraduate and graduate students who have received a financial award letter. Students are assigned to a university department or a community service agency for an average of ten hours per week and paid the federal minimum wage. Opportunities for jobs in the library include Circulation, Reserve, Special Collections and other areas. For more information, visit Student Jobs.

If you are not eligible for Work-Study, you can still possibly work on campus and be paid through departmental or administrative funds. It is your responsibility to check with departments (such as the Dean's Office of Dupré Library) or Career Services for availability.
