Welcome to Luther Seminary Student Employment! Thank you for your interest in a seminary student position.
- Must currently be enrolled as a student at Luther Seminary*
- Must be able to provide proper documentation proving the ability to work in the United States
- Must remain in academic “good standing,” being able to manage work and rigorous study
* Leave of Absence/Withdrawal: Students on an official leave of absence or withdrawal from the seminary are not eligible to work in an on-campus student employment position.
* Grace period for graduates: Due to employment classifications, students are strongly discouraged from working as a “student worker” after they’ve graduated from Luther Seminary. If such an arrangement is made with the supervisor, a domestic student worker’s last day of employment should be no later than 90 days from the last day of the student’s final academic term.
* International students: Nonimmigrant students must comply with certain federal laws and regulations when seeking employment in the United States and should consult the Office of International Student and Scholar Affairs for guidance. F-1 students can find further information on SEVP’s website.
