Cooperative Education and Internships
 

What is Cooperative Education (Co-op)?

Cooperative education (Co-op) provides a guided learning experience for students. It combines a triad of interacting pieces: the employer, the Co-op faculty advisor and the student to generate a unique learning environment. 

How does Co-op work?

Students who qualify meet with a Co-op faculty advisor to determine if a current or potential position offers appropriate level responsibilities to qualify as a Co-op position. The Co-op faculty advisor, the student and the workplace supervisor then work together to design a tailor-made learning experience for the student.

How does a person qualify for Co-op?

Student must have earned 15 semester hours in Business Management or related courses with a grade average of  "C" or better to qualify for Co-op.

How many Co-op credit hours can I apply toward my A.A.S. degree?

Students can apply one semester hour towards the A.A.S in Accounting degree.

How can I learn more about Co-op?
