Cooperative Work Experience

Cooperative Work Experience Education (CWEE) courses are designed to recognize learning that occurs on the job. In order to qualify, a student must develop specific learning objectives approved by the employer and Woodland Community College. See your counselor for more information.

Students earn one unit for each 60 hours of volunteer work experience or for each 75 hours for paid work experience. Students can earn up to four units per semester of work experience credits.
