Can I get paid for studying during my work time?

No. Your work-study position is a real job just like any other job. As an employee of the college, you are needed to work the times you are scheduled to work and to complete the tasks you are assigned. If you need time off to study, talk with your supervisor in advance about scheduling time off from your job. Remember, you have made a commitment to be at work at scheduled times. Work study is a “real job” where the employer requires work in exchange for wages.  If you have down time at your job, be proactive and ask your employer if they have anything they need you to do.  If they say no, not at this time, you can ask them if you can work on school work until there is a project that needs completing.
