    CWEE Orientation

    In order to register for an internship or work experience course at College of the Canyons, you must view and complete the CWEE Online Orientation. Allow yourself about 15 minutes.

    At the conclusion of the orientation, you will submit a Waiver of Liability and your contact information which initiates an email to the Internship office. Once Internship staff receives the email, and you complete the required forms, they will adjust your student record permitting you to register in a specific CWE course (CWE-186, CWE-188 or CWE-189). The online orientation fully explains the process. To expedite the matter, you should have access to a printer, a scanner and email.

    You will need your seven digit student ID#; you can find your student ID# on "MyCanyons". If you are not a COC student, you may submit an application to College of the Canyons through to the Admissions and Records (A&R) website. For assistance regarding your college application, student ID, or your My Canyons account, you can reach A&R at 661.362.3281.
