Co-op Program
Cooperative Education is an optional educational program which allows USA students to integrate periods of classroom study with periods of paid practical work experience related to their academic major. Students work in business, industry, and government agencies. While working, Co-op students earn a competitive salary and may receive benefit packages. Salaries depend on many factors including the employer, students' academic standing, major field, and work performance.

Please contact USA Career Services at (251) 460-6188 for more information.
