Student Benefits

Cooperative Education is the focus of NCCEA members. It should be something you focus on, especially if you are a potential/current college student or a parent.

Cooperative Education is work experience offered through colleges and universities as a way for students to apply what is learned in the classroom.

Cooperative Education is a way for students to:

  • work in jobs related to their majors or career goals
  • clarify their career goals
  • get paid (in most Co-op Education) which helps with educational expenses
  • gain experience to add to their resumes
  • become more prepared for the job market or graduate/professional school
  • make contacts in their profession for their future job search
  • get job offers for permanent jobs upon graduation
  • earn college credits
