Earn college credit and gain valuable work experience!

Cooperative Education (CO-OP) is a program in which LLCC students can earn college credit while gaining work experience for paid or unpaid internships, or part-time or full-time paid employment.

Co-op participants are responsible for identifying, applying, interviewing and obtaining their own job or internship placements. To be eligible for the co-op, students must have completed 12 college credits.

Past participants have benefited greatly from the co-op as they have developed and achieved learning objectives that have prepared them for future career opportunities. During your co-op experience, you will:

  • Be challenged to take on new work responsibilities
  • Learn new and advanced skills and refine your professional abilities
  • Gain professional work experience that can set you apart from your competition in the future
  • Explore your career goals and experience different workplace environments
  • Network with and learn from professional mentors and valuable contacts
  • Earn academic credit toward your degree
