This question on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) tells the college whether the student is interested in receiving federal or college work-study funds.
Students who answer “Yes” to this question are not required to accept a work-study job. Students have the right to decline any forms of financial aid they do not want.
Answering “Yes” also does not guarantee that the student will receive a Federal Work-Study job.
Please note that answering “No” to this question will not increase the amount of scholarship and grant aid a student might receive.
