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 are 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. Students must be enrolled at least half-time to be eligible for this program.

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:

  • Head of household.
  • Single parent who has never attended college or has had a break in enrollment of two years or more.
  • First person in their immediate family to pursue a certificate or degree beyond high school.
  • Not receiving support from parents or family.
  • Have unusual financial circumstances.

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 apply for a job. For on-campus or tutoring positions, complete a Student Employment Application, turn it in to the Financial Assistance Office, and schedule an appointment with the Student Employment coordinator. For off-campus positions, apply directly with the employer or contact person indicated on the job listing.

If a student has been awarded work-study on a Western Nevada College offer letter, he/she must complete the necessary student employment forms within the first week of the semester. If a student fails to complete this process, the work-study offer will be withdrawn.
