Earned Money: Work-Study Jobs

Work-study is a campus or community job, and federal financial aid funds pay a portion of your wages. The number of hours is limited to allow you to focus on your studies and college experience. Although work-study is part of your financial aid package, you’ll be responsible for landing the job based on referrals from the financial aid office. Work-study funds are offered to students based on financial need. You qualify by filing the FAFSA.
