Criminal Justice Work Study Programs


If you are looking for alternative ways to pay for your criminal justice education, it could be a good idea to consider a work-study program.  A work-study program is a federal financial aid program that allows students to work part-time while attending classes and use the earnings to offset their education costs. If your school participates in the work-study program, it will oversee the implementation of the program for your campus.

Work-study jobs can be fulfilled at jobs either on or off-campus. Off-campus jobs are usually with a private nonprofit company or a public agency and will benefit the community in some regard. Many criminal justice students find work study jobs at local law enforcement agencies or in campus or public safety. Jobs are usually related to your course of study if possible.

Work-study program wages vary according to school and student. Your wages will be determined by your financial need, the date you applied for the work-study program and the funding your school has. At the least, you will earn minimum wage but you may earn more depending on your skills and the type of job you have. Keep in mind that the amount you receive in work-study aid is a set amount so you cannot earn more than that amount.

To apply for a work-study program, you will need to fill out the FAFSA. If you qualify, the money you make from your work study program will help you finance your criminal justice or paralegal education. Funding can be used for online or campus programs, whichever suits your needs best.
