Work-Study and Student Employment
Work-study is a limited need-based employment program that allows you to earn a paycheck working part-time on campus or at nonprofit community service agencies. To eligible you must:
- Be pursuing an eligible WCTC degree.
- Meet a certain level of financial need determined by your FAFSA.
To get started:
Complete the FAFSA to determine your eligibility for work-study.
Search for a job on Wisconsin TechConnect. You can use Wisconsin TechConnect to find an on or off-campus job even if you don't qualify for work-study.
Collect your paycheck and spend it wisely. Federal work-study students receive bi-monthly paychecks just like most part-time workers. Work-study earnings are not automatically subtracted from your tuition bill.
