WCU Jamaica Students-2015


Western Carolina University is excited to have you as a student.

Western Carolina University (WCU) has a long standing relationship with the Jamaican Ministry of Education. The relationship began in 1970 with the placement of selected WCU student teachers in Kingston, Jamaica. Your enrollment continues this relationship. As a Western Carolina University student you have access to many resources and you will need information to complete your degree. Much of that information can be found on this website.
