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.
