Requirements for Participation

In order to participate in a Co-op Work Experience class:

  • You must have a job, internship or be volunteering in order to participate in a Work Experience course. I do not place student in jobs/internships as a part of the class.
    • Please contact The Co-op Work Experience & Internship office at (916) 691-7372 for possible internship referral assistance.
  • You are required to attend the mandatory orientation or your first day of class on the CRC main campus.  Please read your CRC class schedule for the specific information on date, time and location.  Failure to attend will result in you being dropped from the class!
    • Please bring your employer/intern site address and supervisors contact information along with a print out of your current class schedule to the orientation or first class.
  • Your work site must be within the Los Rios Community College District service area or the adjacent communities.  If you are unsure, please send me an email with your work site address.
  • You must be able to learn new skills or expand on current skill set on your job or internship.  It is required that you set 3 goals/objectives to work on over the course of the semester/term. These will be your Co-op Student Learning Objectives!
  • You must have a supervisor that can work with you on your Co-op Student Learning Objectives, grade you on these objectives, sign off on other required documents and a time sheet.
  • You must have a supervisor that is willing to meet with me once during the semester regarding your performance.   I will come to your supervisors work site and the meeting usually takes about 15-20 minutes. 
  • You must participate in weekly WEXP lectures/discussions/assignments…either online or in a classroom.  The lecture portion of this course is equivalent to a 1 unit class and your hours at your worksite are your lab hours. Please read the notes section on your class schedule available on eServices to verify which class you are enrolled.
  • You must be able to work a minimum 75 hours if you are paid or 60 hours if you are unpaid for 1 unit over the entire term.   
    • Paid: 1 unit =75 hours, 2=150, 3=225, 4=300   
    • Unpaid: 1 unit=60 hours, 2=120, 3=180, 4=240
