Student Work Assistance Program (SWAP)

The Student Work Assistance Program (SWAP) provides paid employment for students who demonstrate financial need. SWAP students work in various capacities on campus throughout the year.

Note: Applications to and hiring for SWAP/WOC positions for Summer 2020 (employment starting May 1 or later) are not open at this time. Check here for updates.

SWAP Application Process (Students)

To apply for SWAP, please complete the SWAP application form and submit to the Registrar and Enrolment Services Office.

Students must be enrolled in a minimum of 9 credits at Langara. (Students with permanent disabilities, registered with Langara College Disability Services, require a minimum of 6 credits.) This enrolment must be maintained throughout the term in order to remain eligible for the SWAP program. First term students are eligible, but those students who are past first term must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.00. Students must also be in Good Standing.

Students can contact departments on campus to check for position availability or wait to be contacted.
