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 workstudy@wcu.edu to determine your eligibility for work study or if you are interested in hiring a work study student.
