What is Cooperative Education Work Experience?

The Cooperative Education Work Experience program establishes a three-way relationship between the student, the college, and an employer. This structured relationship allows the student to create short and long-range career goals and to recognize his/her progress by establishing three measurable learning objectives for the semester.

Cooperative Education provides a practical learning model for students and helps them prepare for their future careers through the integration of on-the-job learning experiences and academic classroom lessons. By integrating both study and work, each area should become more relevant, interesting, and rewarding.

Eligibility Requirements:
  • Students must be currently employed or have an arranged internship (internship listing available).
  • Students must be employed a minimum of 5 to 20 hours per week during the semester.
  • Students must attend 3 workplace success seminars. 

Mission Statement

The mission of the Cooperative Education Work Experience program is to strengthen student learning by engaging students in enhanced on-the-job learning opportunities and provide meaningful internship opportunities to students of all majors, enabling them to apply the skills and knowledge acquired in their academic coursework while adhering to generally accepted business principles, standards and work ethics.
