Students at SCC are employed by area businesses and industries
and have the opportunity to learn while doing through the College's
Cooperative Education Experience. Students will work in positions
related to their career goals. Student objectives are established
through mutual agreement by the student, the employer, and the
cooperative education experience coordinator. Progress is evaluated
at designated time(s) during the period of employment. SCC's
Cooperative Education Experience is designed for students who have
completed specific courses in their Program of Study and have
achieved a minimum grade-point average of 2.0 on a scale of 4.0.
Coordinators work closely with employers and students to determine
the optimum Cooperative Education arrangement. Students register
for the experience and earn college credit while being paid a
salary for the cooperative experience. The salary is set by the
employer and agreed upon by the student.
