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.
- Earn units toward DEGREE or TRANSFER
- Improve GRADE POINT AVERAGE
- Save TIME – No classroom time required
GENERAL WORK EXPERIENCE 1 to 6 units
Students can earn one unit of credit for each 75 hours (5 hours
weekly) of paid work during the semester or 60 hours (4 hours weekly)
of unpaid volunteer time . GWE is repeatable to a maximum of 6
Please check under WORK EXPERIENCE in the SJCC Schedule to find the
5-digit section number to add. Match the number of hours of work to
the number of college credits you want to earn this semester.
