Earn College Credit While You Work!


The SJCC Work Experience Program allows working students the opportunity to earn college credit for the time and effort that they spend at work to improve job skills and job performance. Students will soon learn that setting goals and writing job-related learning objectives can link what they learn in the classroom to what they learn at work.  In this
program, no classroom time is required. Your workplace is your classroom.
