Cooperative Education-For-You

This page is dedicated to providing information on cooperative education and work experience to help make your educational experience successful.

Co-op is a college program that integrates classroom studies with paid, productive, real-life work experience in a related field. Students get the best of both worlds -- a high quality academic degree and an impressive resumé of practical work experience. Employers find motivated, well-prepared students who excel as student employees and as future hires after graduation.

Whether you are a high school or college student, parent, employer or college educator, you will find useful information that outlines the benefits for you and tells you how to participate. High school counselors and teachers will also find information to help their students in the college selection process. Students, employers, and colleges that offer co-op get a distinct edge on the competition. These three groups are partners in a successful academic program which is more relevant than ever in building the high performance workforce of the twenty-first century. And, you can find co-op in hundreds of colleges at the associates, baccalaureate and graduate levels.

Studies showed that one in three college graduates could not find employment requiring a college degree. Relevant work experience gives students an upper hand in building a career.

More than 80 percent of the top 100 companies in the Fortune 500 employ students through college co-op programs.

Take a look at the educational, financial, career and human resource benefits you can get through co-op. Related links connects you with organizations and government agencies which assist those interested in cooperative education and work-integrated learning.

The National Commission for Cooperative Education is a private, nonprofit organization promoting co-op since 1962. The Commission works with colleges, employers and policy makers to expand this successful work and learning program.
