    How to Prepare for CWE

    Review the Student Guide

      Meet with an Advisor:
    • For help determining which CWE course to take for your program.
    • To learn about prerequisites needed for CWE.
    • To plan out which term(s) to complete your CWE.
      Meet with your CWE Instructor at least 1 term before you plan to take the CWE course:
    • Discuss CWE requirements and your career goals.
    • Determine the # of credits to take.
      Find a CWE site and get it approved by your CWE Instructor:
    • If you have a current job related to your program, get this approved by your CWE Instructor.
    • If you do not have a CWE site, search for one with the assistance of your CWE Instructor.
    • The CCC Career Center can also provide additional support with locating a CWE site and updating your resume or cover letter.
