Steps to Enroll

  1. You must have a job, internship, volunteer, student worker, or Federal Work Study position lined up before enrolling in Work Experience.

  2. Before you register on WebAdvisor, you must know the appropriate Work Experience course in which to enroll in AND determine how many units you can earn up to, based on the total number of hours you will be working during your course session. The following should help:

    • Does your current job relate to your occupational/education goal?

      If your current position does not relate to your occupational/educational goal, you may enroll in General Work Experience (WEG – 095A). You may earn 1 - 6 units of General Work Experience per semester (if you meet the hour requirement, see below). A maximum of 16 total units combined throughout your tenure at COD may be earned.

      If your current posit​ion does relate to your educational/occupational goal, you may enroll in the appropriate Occupational Work Experience (XXX – 095A) course listed on WebAdvisor such as AJ, CART, AUTO, HS, KINE, BUMA, BUAC, etc. For a full list of Work Experience courses click on "Work Experience Class Listings" on the left side menu. You may earn 1-8 units in any occupational work experience course (if you meet the hour requirement, see below). A maximum of 16 total units combined throughout your tenure at COD may be earned.

    • Use the chart below to help you determine up to how many units you may qualify to earn based on the number of hours you will complete. There are no exceptions to the minimum hour requirements for paid or unpaid positions and a final grade cannot be issued if total hours are not met by the end of the course.

  3. Now that you have determined the correct number units you can earn up to, and what type of work experience course you should enroll in; you may register on WebAdvisor.

    Note: BEFORE you click "submit", you MUST manually enter the number of units you want to enroll in, if you meet the hour requirement. WebAdvisor will default to 1 unit if no changes are made. Skipping this step may result in delayed approval of your Application Form once you begin the course and you may not be able to make changes to the number of units enrolled after census ​date.

  4. Check Canvas the first day of class to review syllabus, watch the Class Introduction Video, and Complete the required Application Form to begin course.
