Information for Students

The following information is for all students interested in how to Get Credit for Working:

  • There are two different WEXP courses and several sections (CRNs) for each WEXP course. Click here to learn how to select the correct WEXP course, CRN and units.
  • While there are NO WEEKLY CLASSES to attend, each WEXP student must attend a one-time, two-hour orientation at the beginning of the course. Attend the earliest orientation possible.
    • Click here for the Orientation Schedule. It is also posted on the course homepage. Be sure to call 805 546-3204 to reserve your seat. It is best to be enrolled in the course before attending the orientation- but you are welcome to attend if you are not yet sure that this is the class for you.
    • Read Orientation Information for more helpful details.
  • Check out these simple Steps for Success in WEXP. This will give you a short overview of the few activities & assignments required in the course.
  • The Student FAQs will address more of your questions.
  • Once you are registered: check out the course homepage and be sure to read the welcome message. You should also start checking your Cuesta email regularly for important course information.
    • Near the beginning of the course, enrolled WEXP students will find a schedule of orientations, the academic course calendar, assignments/forms, handouts, and other information on the course homepage located on myCuesta. Course materials are added and updated on the course homepage as needed throughout the semester.
