Work Study Information

Work Study is a federally funded program designed to assist exceptionally needy students with educational costs. Work-Study is a need-based program.

How Do I Qualify for Work Study?

In addition to early application, there are four other qualifications in order to be awarded work-study:

  • You must be enrolled at least 6 credits per semester and must be working towards a degree at Lyndon State College.
  • You must qualify on the basis of need. Need is determined by the Financial Aid Office after evaluating your FAFSA.
  • You must be making satisfactory academic progress.
  • If selected, you must complete the verification process.

Failure to turn in necessary documents when requested may result in loss of work-study eligibility. You will receive notification on whether or not you are eligible for work-study on your Financial Aid Award Letter/Email Notification. If your award package does not include a work-study amount, you are not eligible.
