Work Experience (WEXP)
Career Options & Highlights
The Cooperative Work Experience Education and Internship Program (WEXP) is a unique, experiential, academic program that allows individuals to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom to a work environment. Upon completion of their WEXP experience, students may earn 1-4 units of transferable credit with a letter grade. Work Experience serves all students and all majors. It is also one of several Living Skills graduation requirements for an associate degree. Click here to find out more information about internships and work experience.
Co-op Internships and Opportunities
Internships and volunteer experiences provide an opportunity for students to obtain work experience in their major. This activity assists students to develop technical skills, explore career choice, build confidence, network with people in the field, and transition for entry into a competitive labor market.
Interested students must apply two or more weeks before classes start and are required to take a weekly one hour career management class. College credit is earned and internships may be paid or non-paid. To apply to an internship or for general questions about the program please see the WEXP Faculty page.
Co-op also assists our busy employed students who are interested in advancing within their existing work environment. Through Co-op and the approval of the student's employer supervisor, students can apply what they have learned in the classroom to their job.
College credit is earned.
