Cooperative Education

Cooperative Education (Co-op) is an educational program offered to students enrolled in college transfer or professional-technical programs. Academic credit is earned for the learning that occurs on the job, providing students with an opportunity to integrate the educational process with supervised work, intern, or volunteer experiences.

Students may earn credit for their jobs (with permission) or paid/unpaid internships. Co-op is a coordinated effort between the student, the employing organization, and the college. Advantages include the opportunity to explore or clarify career choices, acquire career-related experience, improve skills or learn new ones applicable to future employment, and earn college credit. (These are considered vocational credits and can be applied to the elective area of the A.A. degree.)

A separate component of our program (Community Service Co-op) allows students to earn academic credit for volunteer service in non-profit, community-based organizations while providing needed services to the community. Credit is also available for international internships/volunteer service, and travel study/language enhancement activities.

eLearning students are eligible to participate in the Co-op Program. For information on course content or registration procedures, contact the office by phone, 206.934.5422, via or, visit our website.
