Internship & Work Experience Orientations
Which orientation should a student complete?
- Complete an Internship Orientation:
- If you are seeking credit for a paid or unpaid internship through enrollment in a CWE course. It is the students responsibility to secure the internship prior to enrolling in the CWE course.
- OR if you are participating in a program at COC that requires enrollment in a CWE course for completion of your certificate or degree AND you are already employed within your field of study. This means you want to earn internship credit for a job that is related to your major.
- Complete a Work Experience Orientation: If you would like to use a job for work experience credit and the job is unrelated to your program of study.
