Cooperative Work Experience (CWE)

Cooperative Work Experience (CWE) is a method of education that combines work experience gained by students on the job with regular academic instruction integral to the community college curriculum. Based on the principle that individuals may develop most effectively through an educational pattern that incorporates experiences beyond the campus, these structured work activities in business, industry, government and human services are designed to enrich the student's college studies and enhance the student's development. Interested students should enroll in their program's 167 or 168 course, where available. Students should consult with their CWE coordinator to ensure that they enroll in the appropriate unit value of their course. Students must work 60 hours in an unpaid or 75 hours in a paid position for each unit of college credit they earn. 

Students are required to have a paid or volunteer position to enroll in Cooperative Work Experience. Placement assistance may be found in the Career Center, but placement is not guaranteed.
