Then, how many hours a week can a student work if they are working under a federal work study job and enrolled in classes?
Federal Work-Study (FWS): Provides jobs for students with financial need. Jobs are a minimum of 10 hours per week to a maximum of 18 hours per week or less and pay between $7.50 - $12.25 per hour and work around students' class schedules. Students must be enrolled at least half-time (6 units).
Secondly, how do you qualify for work study? To qualify for a Federal Work-Study award, a student must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), meet the general eligibility requirements for federal student aid, demonstrate financial need, and be enrolled or accepted for enrollment, as an undergraduate, graduate, or professional degree-seeking
Simply so, can I use work study money for anything?
Colleges apply for work-study funds through the U.S. Department of Education and the money received is used to pay work-study wages. Most students use their earnings to pay for living expenses and use savings and loans to cover larger costs like tuition and room and board.
Are work study jobs worth it?
While it is true that most work-study jobs are tailored for students, if you have a heavy course load and a heavy workload in those classes, you might not have enough time to do work-study. So to sum it up: Work-study is worth a try if it pays well enough and it doesn't interfere with your studies.
