Through part-time work, students earn money for college, often while gaining experience in jobs related to their career goals. The State Work Study (SWS) program also provides students with an alternative to high levels of borrowing.
The state's two- and four-year colleges and universities, and many accredited independent four-year colleges and universities, offer this form of financial assistance to eligible students. See the List of participating colleges and universities.
