Cooperative Work Experience Education combines work experience with college instruction. This program is organized to provide students with new, expanded, and practical learning opportunities on the job so they may achieve the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed for career success. In addition to the general work experience course (WKEX 233), occupational work experience courses are offered in all career and technical education disciplines (see courses numbered 299 in career and technical disciplines).

General Cooperative Work Experience is intended for students employed in a job not directly related to their major.
