How to Determine Units

You may earn from 1 – 4 units of general college credit during this program. The number of units requested from the program is dependent upon the number of on-the-job hours completed during the participating semester. If you do not meet the minimum required on-the-job hours for the units requested, you will receive non-credit for the units requested on the OWE application. You must also declare that your employment is PAID or UNPAID/VOLUNTEER and may not earn OWE units under both categories simultaneously. 

Paid Employment Status Unpaid/Volunteer Employment Status
75 hours completed on the job = 1 unit 60 hours completed on the job = 1 unit
150 hours completed on the job = 2 units 120 hours completed on the job = 2 units
225 hours completed on the job = 3 units 180 hours completed on the job = 3 units
00 hours completed on the job = 4 units 240 hours completed on the job = 4 units
