Students can bypass scholarship applications by enrolling in a work college. Designed to lower college costs and to provide work experience, the nation's seven four-year and one two-year work colleges require all students to work, usually 15 to 20 hours per week and sometimes while school isn't in session. In exchange, they receive free or substantially reduced tuition.

According to the Work College Consortium in Berea, Ky., students work in fields ranging from landscaping to hospitality, can change jobs once per year (sometimes more), and leave campus with their degree and four years of experience.
