Students may receive credit for work experience related to their major field or to
their established career goal. Seminars and individual conferences are scheduled at
convenient times during the semester for the instructor and the student to establish
learning objectives related to the student's employment. Students are given appropriate
assignments related to the stated objectives and graded in accordance with the college's
established grading system. As an alternative, related instruction classes meeting
one hour per week, usually in the evening, are available for those students who prefer
or need a more structured learning. One unit of credit, for every 75 hours worked
per semester, may be earned by students with jobs related to their academic or occupational
majors or goals. It may be repeated for credit up to 16 units. This limitation applies
to Occupational Cooperative Education work experience courses offered within the SMCCCD.
