OCCUPATIONAL WORK EXPERIENCE is a program of onthe- job learning experiences for students employed in a job related
to an occupationally oriented major. The goals and assignments for completion of the
courses are formulated with industry under the direction of the college instructor
assigned to teach Work Experience 270. The grading system is the same as for other
subjects offered by the college and the time spent for preparation and training is
also comparable. Adequate records are maintained to determine satisfactory progress
and attendance. Students in the Cosmetology program will be required to comply with
and maintain standards of dress and grooming. Excessive absences may result in exclusion
from the program. All prospective students are required to attend an orientation program.
