Butler Community College students are encouraged to gain workplace experience through the online Internships or Cooperative Education.
Students enrolled in Cooperative Education earn college credit while gaining valuable work experience. Students learn while they earn and may enroll in a maximum of six 3-hour Cooperative Education courses for a total of 24 credit hours while at Butler. Cooperative Education students must:
Be employed in their major field of study or their career field.
Work 150 clock hours for each three hour Cooperative Education class.
Complete academic assignments related to their job or career goals.
Master competencies set out in a training plan developed by the student, and approved by the supervisor and instructor.
Credit earned through Cooperative Education satisfies elective credit requirements in most Butler programs of study and are accepted by many area schools and colleges.
