Work-study programs allow the student to work during college in exchange for college tuition. There are two types of work-study programs: Federal Work-Study and Non-Federal Work-Study. Federal work-study programs are available to students who have financial need and who would like to participate in a work-study program.
Non-federal work study programs vary from college to college. It is best to contact the school’s financial aid office to learn about the availability of work-study options.
