Cooperative Education - Work Experience

Through Cooperative Education/Work Experience, students earn college credit by improving their skills and knowledge on a paid or volunteer assignment. Students work with instructors and job supervisors to establish measurable learning objectives appropriate for their jobs. Credit is earned toward an associate degree or certificate when these objectives are successfully accomplished. Call 306-3367 for additional information.

Students who have jobs related to their occupational goals may earn one unit of credit for each 75 hours of paid work with a maximum of four units per semester for a total not to exceed 16 units while enrolled in a community college. Students in volunteer jobs with non-profit organizations may earn one unit of credit for each 60 hours of work.
