Cooperative Work Experience Education Home


Work experience, in conjunction with a program of instruction, makes it possible for a student to obtain college credit for paid or volunteer experience. During regular semesters, students must enroll in a minimum of seven units including Cooperative Work Experience Education. During summer sessions, students must enroll in one other class in addition to Cooperative Work Experience Education. Students may enroll in no more than four units of Cooperative Work Experience Education per semester, on the basis of 75 hours of paid work experience per semester per each unit of credit, or 60 hours of unpaid or volunteer work experience per semester per each unit of credit.
