Work study was included as part of my financial aid award, so I was just wondering..
1. Do I have to pay up front and then be reimbursed later? I mean...since it's PART of my Financial Aid, will it be reduced at the beginning of the year from my cost...or do I slowly pay them my wages, or what? The reason I'm asking is I finally got the financial aid office to cover my full tuition, room, and board with grants, plus work study. If work study doesn't count up front, I'll have to pay them that $2,000 bucks, and we just don't have it.
2. Work study is on campus, right? Do they help you find jobs? How often do you work...and can you work extra to make more money?
