The Cooperative Education Program is an academic program which integrates classroom study with practical experience in business, education, industry, public and community agency work situations. Through this experience, students are given the opportunity to practice in a work environment the theories and principles related to their major course of study. The work experience constitutes a regular and essential element in the educational process by allowing students to apply their studies in a real work environment.
The Cooperative Education work experience occurs concurrently with academic studies, may be paid or unpaid, and awards academic credit. A maximum of six credit hours may be earned through the Cooperative Education program. One credit hour equals 160 hours of work experience per semester. Credit is awarded based on evaluations and assignments from the students' supervisor at work, faculty advisor, and the Cooperative Education Director.
For many MCC students, Cooperative Education provides an extra means of financial support. All curriculums except Nursing, Cosmetology, and Medical Assisting may participate in Cooperative Education.
Employers must agree to assist with evaluations with their individual students' progress.
