What is Cooperative Education?
Cooperative Education (Co-op) is a program which allows students to combine academic study with degree related work experience. Co-op is a perfect way for employers to fill positions with highly motivated student employees with specialized skills. You set the criteria for positions, we do the pre-screening for you. Why not contact one of the many satisfied VSU Co-op employers to see how the program benefits them!
