Work-Study Programs

Earn money for school by working on campus

For students who need to earn extra money while attending college, a work-study program can be a great choice. It’s an opportunity to earn a paycheck, build your resume and gain valuable references. The pay is $15 an hour, and Anoka-Ramsey, depending on eligibility, students may earn up to $5,000 per year.

This form of financial aid, financed through state or federal funds, allows students to work part-time on campus in a department of their choice (depending on job availability). Students work from five to 15 hours per week during the school year and up to 30 hours per week during the summer.

To be considered for a work-study opportunity:

  • Submit a FAFSA form to the Financial Aid Office early in the school year; Anoka-Ramsey's FAFSA code is 002332.
  • Demonstrate your financial need
  • Indicate interest in a work-study position
