Work Study

Work Study is a federally-funded program that provides part-time job opportunities to eligible students to assist them with education and education-related expenses. Western Carolina University students can gain valuable work experience through community service, by working in a job related to their major, or obtaining a job in an area of interest.

Students are offered work study based on financial need, federal funding, and availability of funds. They’re paid bi-weekly through direct deposit as they work to earn the funding provided in their Financial Aid Package.

Please contact to determine your eligibility for work study or if you are interested in hiring a work study student.
