My financial aid package includes work-study. Won't working hurt my grades?

    A number of recent studies show a correlation between good grades and working a small amount (10 to 15 hours per week). In addition, work-study is an excellent tool to gather work experience necessary for finding employment after college. If you choose not to work, you can decline the work-study funds offered and often replace those funds with a student loan or summer employment.
