Career/Occupational Work Experience is designed for students who work or volunteer in a field related to their career major. Students are required to provide evidence that they are enrolled in a career program (e.g., education plan or coursework in a career/technical subject area).
Students who are not employed in their intended career field, but are employed, may enroll in General Work Experience only, which is repeatable to a maximum of 6 units. Internship/job placement is the responsibility of the student, but students may seek assistance in the campus Job Placement Center.
Students can earn one unit of credit for each 60 hours of unpaid volunteer time or 75 hours of paid work during the semester. Students can repeat Career/Occupational Work Experience, combined with General Work Experience, or alone, up to a maximum of 16 units.
Students are required to submit a new application(pdf) each semester.
Theseapplications should be sent to the WE instructors in one of two ways:
- Scan the completed application and email to one of the instructors above.
- Drop it off in the WE drop box at Room 308A in the 300 building (first long building next to Cosmetology)
