Students Relieved to Learn Shutdown Doesn't Affect Work Study Program

Most computer systems will be accessible during the shutdown, so minimal impact is expected on the federal student aid programs.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Federal work study has not affected by the government shutdown, meaning students can continue working on campus to help finance their education.

The information provided a collective sigh of relief from some students and supervisors at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock (UALR), as officials clarified the issue that had many concerned.

"I know that it will eventually affect me, but right now I'm glad I'm able to work and make money," says work study student Kenisha Whitfield.

UALR was approved for the 2013-2014 Federal Work Study Allocation earlier this year, which was reduced in the sequester.
