The Cooperative Education program is a planned, paid work experience in which a student is employed in a job directly related to his or her fields of study. The program offers both alternating and parallel work schedules. In the alternating schedule, the student works full-time one semester and is enrolled in classes full-time the following semester. In the parallel schedule, the student is enrolled in classes and works part-time each semester.
The program offers academic or vocational credits for each semester worked. The student must have completed 12 credit hours in the program and maintain a 2.5 GPA throughout the cooperative education experience. Each student must complete certain requirements before being sent on job interviews and must also complete specific objectives related to his or her program for each semester of employment. These requirements will ensure that the student participates in real life occupational experiences, which will enhance the educational experience through individualized, on-the-job situations.
The cooperative education program unites the College, the student, and the employer to provide each student with a well-rounded education and offers experience for the job market. Any interested student should contact the Student Job Services, Building 6, Room 641 on the Pensacola campus or call (850) 484-1654 for more information.
