Off-Campus Work Study Employers
The Off-Campus Work Study Program at Western Washington University allows employers to hire students for the academic year. This program is beneficial to employers because they are reimbursed a percentage of the student employee’s earnings, but also beneficial to the student because the positions provides them with job experience. Please read the Off-Campus Guidebook for more information on the work study program.
