Cooperative education (Co-op)

Co-op is a program that incorporates actual work experience into the planned college curriculum. After successful completion of the basic courses, students may elect to enter a co-op experience. Co-op allows students to be placed in an approved training environment, earn college credits for satisfactory work performance and earn wages for hours worked. To participate in this program, students must be qualified and receive approval from their department faculty advisor prior to the semester that co-op work experience would begin.
