.02 NA Student Eligibility-Work Study
NA students who are participating in a state or federally financed work study program during the regular school year are NA eligible. The student must actually be working at a job and receiving earnings or tuition credit for the work performed.
 
NOTE This criteria is met even when earnings from certain work study programs are not counted for eligibility and income determination.
 
EXCEPTION
Do not consider a student who is working in a hospital or student teaching as participating in a state or federally financed work study. The student is receiving class credits, not earnings or tuition credit.
 
NA student eligibility based on work study participation continues through vacations, breaks in the school year, and between semesters or quarters.
 
The NA student must have been participating in work study during the school period prior to the break and must plan on continuing work study once classes resume.
 
An NA student may not be eligible because they do not meet the work study requirements. When the student is not eligible during the school year, they remain not eligible during semester breaks and summer months.
 
NOTE When the student meets the criteria for Work Study key the WS Exemption Reason Code in the STUDENT EXEM field on SSDO.
