The purpose of this study was to find out more about working students perspectives on work/school conflict and facilitation. The subjects that participated in the study included students workers of Rowan University employed through the Federal Work Study (FWS) Program in the area of Gloucester County, New Jersey. Data from the subjects were gathered using a quantitative survey design, with items presented in a Likert scale format. The data were analyzed using SPSS Software, and frequency of response, measures of central tendency, and Pearson correlations were examined in order to determine student attitudes regarding work/school conflict and facilitation. Subjects were also asked to provide recommendations for college administrators and off-campus employers regarding the balance of work and school for working college students. The results revealed that the majority of student workers experienced higher levels of work/school facilitation rather than work/school conflict, and many recommended that college administrators and off-campus employers provide flexibility when managing working college students.
