Work-study programs have rules about whether the work can be on-campus or off-campus and about the maximum number of hours per week you can work. Your campus financial aid office should have the details specific to your program.
In order to apply for Federal Work-Study, submit the FAFSA and indicate an interest in work-study in section 1 of the FAFSA.
To find out if there are campus-specific work-study programs at the school you plan to attend, contact that school's financial aid office.
