What It is

Cooperative Work Experience Education offers students an on-the-job training program directly related to their academic major and career interests. Its purposes are to help students chose a career, find the right job and achieve success on the job. It provides a supervised off-campus work assignment through which students earn degree credit and in most situations, a salary as well.

Students can earn from one to three credits per semester.

  • 10 hours per week @ 15 weeks = 150 hours = 1 Credit
  • 15 hours per week @ 15 weeks = 225 hours = 2 Credits
  • 20 hours per week @ 15 weeks = 300 hours = 3 Credits
