Students: Please contact your faculty advisor or the department WBL Faculty Coordinator to determine if Work-Based Learning is offered in your program of study and if you are eligible. To find the Faculty Coordinator, see list below. For more information, contact Kathy Frederick Work-Based Learning Director.

Any Wake Tech student who applies for admission to the Work-Based Learning program by the posted deadline and is denied admission to the program for the stated semester may appeal the decision by following the steps below.

  1. Make an appointment with the Director of Work-Based Learning/WBL Faculty Coordinator to review the eligibility criteria and discuss the reason for denial.
  2. If you do not agree with the decision for denial as explained by Director of WBL/WBL Faculty Coordinator, you may schedule an appointment with the Division Dean for your program of study who will review the decision with you and WBL Director/WBL Faculty Coordinator.  The Division Dean will have the authority to agree with the decision to deny the application or may override the decision and approve your application. 
  3. If you do not agree with the decision made by the Division Dean, you may elect to meet with the Provost who will review the decision and make a final ruling as to the approval or denial your application for the WBL program.

If you are in need of business clothing for interviews and work, Wake County offers a Network of Care (Resources)

Employers: For information on posting job opportunities for our students, please contact Kathy Frederick in the Work-Based Learning Office.
