There are two types of CWEE: General Work Experience and Occupational Work Experience.
General Work Experience
The General Work Experience program provides on-the-job opportunities for students to learn the skills required for successful employment. Students may also earn college credit for current work experience. The work experience need not be related to the students' educational goals.
Occupational Work Experience
Occupational Work Experience provides students the opportunity to earn course and certificate credit for working in the field, in a supervised setting in an industry related to the students’ major or Career and Technical Education program or associated with the students’ educational or occupational goals. Occupational Work Experience offers students the opportunity to apply their skills while still in college, gain on-the-job experience, and "try out" a career before graduation.
