What is Work Study?

Work Study Programs provide funding for part-time jobs for students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. These programs encourage work related to the student’s course of study. Most students will work 10-15 hours per week with the maximum being 20 hours. Students can earn the amount listed on their award letter.

Student Employment Programs

These programs help students earn part of their college expenses while attending school. To be considered for the majority of student employment funds, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Federal Work-Study Program is a federally funded program designed to help provide employment for qualified students who demonstrate a financial need as determined by the FAFSA. These are on-campus jobs that are located on the Carson City, Fallon and Douglas campuses. The hours worked are arranged around the student’s class schedule, not to exceed 20 hours per week. Students must be enrolled at least half-time to be eligible for this program.

Nevada Student Employment Program is a state-funded program based on financial need as determined by the FAFSA. Students must be a Nevada resident and enrolled at least half-time. Like federal work-study, these are on-campus jobs that are located on the Carson City, Fallon and Douglas campuses. The hours worked are arranged around the student’s class schedule, not to exceed 20 hours per week.

Western Student Employment Program is a Nevada access employment program for students who have demonstrated financial need as determined by the FAFSA and is designed to help provide employment for qualified students who demonstrate a financial need. These are on-campus jobs that are located on the Carson City, Fallon and Douglas campuses. The hours worked are arranged around the student’s class schedule, not to exceed 20 hours per week.

Regents Service Program is a state funded program based on criteria established by the Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents. To be eligible, Nevada residents must be enrolled at least half-time and must meet at least one of the following criteria:

WNC uses the funds from this program to support literacy by providing reading tutors to the elementary schools within our service area. These tutors provide individual and group tutoring at the elementary schools. A FAFSA is not required for this program. Applications are available in the Financial Assistance Office.

Applying for Student Employment

If a student has been awarded Federal Work Study funding, he/she can interview for a job.

If a student has been awarded work-study on a Western Nevada College offer letter, he/she must accept the award within the first week of the semester. If a student fails to secure a position within two weeks, the work-study offer will be withdrawn.
