Is a summer job worthless because the $$ you get from it will have to reported on your FAFSA next year and then you'll recieve less grant money from your college next year anyway?

Oh please...having a summer job is a good thing. It not only earns you some money, but it shows a level of responsibility also. In addition, colleges assume that students WILL contribute themselves towards their college educations. If you earn enough to offset your aid that is a GOOD thing, not a bad one. It is not likely that you will earn enough to significantly affect your finaid.

Say I'm getting a grant package of $15,000 now from my college.
I get a summer job, make $1,500.
Might it be possible that next year's package contains $13,500?

No, most schools assume that you work and support yourself a little. Check your schools aid calculator. My daughter's assumes she will make $1200 and has to contribute that much each year.

Virtually all colleges assume that you will contribute $1,000 to $1,500 from summer employment every year, and that cost is reflected in your EFC. Not working will not change your EFC a hair.( plus make you look like a Richard)

Yeah, I am wondering the same thing.
I may get a job this summer, but I will be spending the money on private music lessons and saving for study abroad.
Smith has already given me work study as part of my package, and I don't have any expected student contribution as until now I have not been allowed to have a job.
If I do get a summer job, will I end up having to cough all the money up to Smith?
