Requirements of Continued Employment
Academic performance should be the student’s first priority while at Lynchburg College. A student’s continued participation in the Student Employment Program depends partly on his or her ability to maintain a satisfactory grade point average, which the Office of Financial Aid monitors.
To maintain employment, students must reach the following QPA (quality point average) on all work taken at Lynchburg College: Freshman (first semester) 1.80 QPA; Freshman (second semester) 2.00 QPA; Sophomore 2.00 QPA; Junior 2.00 QPA; Senior 2.00 QPA.
Students may choose to resign for academic, extra-curricular or personal reasons.
If you wish to resign, you should notify your supervisor and the Student Employment Coordinator of your intentions to resign. When possible, you should provide your supervisor two weeks’ notice to allow time to find a replacement.
Supervisors may request termination of a student employee.
The termination may be the result of, but not limited to, poor job performance, excessive absenteeism, or falsifying information. Termination should be requested as a last resort. The supervisor should speak with the student employee about ways of improving inappropriate behavior before termination is requested. See: Disciplinary Procedures
Student Employment Coordinator
The Student Employment Coordinator may terminate a student’s employment.
Students who have reached or exceeded their work award for the academic year will be terminated. Also, students whose enrollment or academic status drops below the required standards will be terminated from student employment. Students and supervisors will be notified of this action.
