Cooperative Education Cooperative Education is a program which integrates academic study with related paid or unpaid professional work experience. The Co-op Ed program is designed to give a student who has identified a genuine interest in a particular career field some basic on-the-job training and experience. The program is individualized for each student. Each student intern earns college credit for completing classroom work assigned by his or her faculty advisor. We try to keep things simple for the employer. The paperwork is brief, the cost is nominal, the rewards for both employer and student are many.
