Work-study is one of the financial aid options that are available to you if you qualify for it. There are usually on-campus work-study programs or off-campus work-study programs. You must connect with your school to see what options are available for you. 

There are several benefits of a work-study job including flexibility with hours, little or no commute since most opportunities are on campus, and easy access to campus resources. You can list on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form that you’re interested in pursuing a work-study program. 

Work-study can be a great way to gain experience and develop skills related to your intended career path. They can also help you learn more about your college program and supplement your education. When you’re looking for work-study jobs, it’s helpful to search for openings by the department to see if there are any that relate to your major. Connect with a work-study representative to see if they can help you find related openings.
