Cooperative Work Experience is a process of education that combines work experience with college instruction as an integral part of the community college curriculum. It is called Cooperative Work Experience because employers and educators cooperate to form a more complete educational program for students. It is a unique plan of education designed to develop skills and provide hands-on experience by integrating classroom study with planned, supervised work experience. At Lake Michigan College, the employer typically pays co-op positions and the student will typically earn college credit.
