Work Study - Student Employment

Anoka Technical College employs students with job responsibilities that vary from lab work, to mowing, to secretarial duties, to working as a tour guide. Students earn wages through two different types of programs - either federal or state work-study.

Work Study is need based. Applications will be reviewed for work-study eligibility. A work study award indicates that the student is eligible to work and receive state or federal funding for this work. A work study must be attending at least 6 credits for their program of study. The award amount listed on your award letter is the maximum amount you are eligible to earn during the school year. Work study funds are not applied to charges at the beginning of the semester.
