Statement: Cooperative work experience (CWE) is available to students in certain program areas. A maximum of 6 credits may be applied toward a degree program as elective credits. These credits are not transferable to UNR and UNLV. Cooperative work experience courses must have a training agreement form with final rating scores in the college record system.

Section 1: Procedures

  1. When a student enrolls in cooperative work experience, the cooperative work experience coordinator ensures the development of a training agreement for the student. The training agreement states competency based learning objectives. These objectives are developed with input from the work supervisor.
  2. This agreement is filed in the CWE coordinators office.
  3. Upon completion of the course the CWE coordinator ensures completion of the final rating of the competency based learning objectives as well as a final evaluation form addressing work attitudes and behaviors. These written reports specify satisfactory completion of the obligation and activities in the student training agreement.
  4. These reports are filed with the CWE coordinator.
  5. Upon completion of the CWE course, a grade sheet is submitted to the appropriate Academic Directors office.
  6. The grade sheet is forwarded to the admissions office.
