VA Work Study Program
VA work study is available to anyone receiving VA educational benefits and who is taking 9 or more credits per term. This is NOT related to the college Work Study Program. You DO NOT have to be eligible for Financial Aid to qualify. The pay is the current state minimum wage per hour, tax free.
If you are receiving veteran's benefits and enrolled at least three/quarter time (9 to 11 credits or more) you may be eligible to apply for work study at the Roseburg VA Medical Center or with the Oregon State Employment Division.
Application can be made for advance pay if there is more than a 30-day break between terms. Advance pay requests must be received by the Veterans Office at least 30 days prior to the beginning of the term for which advance pay is requested. Advance pay checks are sent directly to the Business Office at UCC and cannot be released until the first day of the term. Proof of registration payment must be submitted prior to the release of the check.
To obtain more information concerning the amount of benefits and problems relating to pay, call the VA regional office at 1-888-442-4551.
