  (4) unless eligible for a waiver of matching funds under subsection (b) of this section, provide not less than 25 percent of an employed student's wages and 100 percent of other employee benefits for the employed student from sources other than federal college work-study program funds, if the employer is a nonprofit entity; or

  (5) provide not less than 50 percent of an employed student's wages and 100 percent of other employee benefits for the employed student, if the employer is a profit-making entity.

(b) Institutions eligible to receive Title III funds from the U. S.

S. Department of Education.
