How do I know if I'm eligible for Work Study?


Eligible for Work Study

Work-study enables you to earn a portion of your financial aid assistance by working part-time, usually  on campus.  You will work a specified number of hours a week, and will be paid through the college’s payroll department for those hours.

To be eligible for work-study, you must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen, as defined by the U.S. Department of Education.
  • Be enrolled in at least six credits, in an eligible degree or certificate program.
  • Have a high school diploma,GED, or have been successfully homeschooled.
  • Be in good standing in accordance with RRCC’s Satisfactory Academic Progress standards.
  • Be registered with the Selective Service (males only).
  • Not be in default of a student loan or owe a repayment on a federal grant at any educational institution.
  • Have submitted the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and have been determined to be eligible for either need-based work-study or non-need-based work-study.
