Q. What's the difference between subsidized, unsubsidized and work/study money? My son was offered all three this year, but last year he wasn't offered any. Why is that?

A. Let's first go over the different kinds of aid.

Work/Study is part-time work for students.

"There is a limit to how much you can work," said Jerry Lynch, a certified financial planner with JFL Total Wealth Management in Boonton. "The total amount you get is based upon three things: when you apply, your level of financial need and how much is approved for your school."
