A Guide to Operating an Off-Campus College Work-Study Program.
Off-campus work-learning programs have developed because of a demand by students and the education community for a more relevant postsecondary education experience. The purpose of this guide is to provide information, ideas, and suggestions to enable the financial aid officer to better meet the demands of an off-campus College Work-Study Program (CWSP). There is an effort to clarify procedures in areas such as insurance, social security, payroll, and contracts, which have created a reluctance on the part of many administrators to develop or expand their off-campus program. The intent is to provide a broad sampling of methods and forms for development and improvement of programs. The models or alternatives discussed are broad and general so as to be adaptable to the variety of situations and environments found in postsecondary programs. The guide contains materials on ways to find jobs, student placement procedures, program-administration tips, issues and policy, academic credit, evaluation. Included are examples of forms which can be used for off-campus work-study, and a sampling of different types of off-campus placement that are both acceptable and unacceptable according to the federal regulations. The guide has been produced to accompany the Office of Education's CWSP Manual. (Author/JMF)
