Important: When you submit the request for a Work Study Assignment Form, the U.S. Department of Higher Education requires OTC to reduce your maximum Direct Loan Amount by the amount of your FWS award if it causes an overaward. A FWS award does not guarantee employment but offers a potential to earn income through on-campus employment during the academic year. Please see the amounts below to realize how much your loan debt could be reduced.
