Work Experience


The College’s agreement with the Chancellor’s Office stipulates that we offer Occupational Work Experience Education designed to provide students enrolled in our Career Technical Education programs with on-the-job learning opportunities relating to the students’ educational or occupational goals. 

The work performed for a work experience course must occur during the scheduled term. Work experience hours at a job site may not begin before the term begins or continue after the term has ended. The Mt. SAC District covers worker’s compensation for non-paid work experience; however, the employer must pay worker’s compensation for paid work experience. Each 75 hours of paid work and 60 hours of non-paid work equal one semester unit of credit.

For a listing of funded programs that offer work experience to students, please see Mt. SAC Perkins Funded Programs.
