March 2019 - We are moving to an electronic process for learning agreements.  This page will be updated as the process unfolds.  We are currently testing the system and do not expect full implementation until the end of early-to-mid 2020.  If you have any questions, please contact Jo Ann Ryan, Internship Coordinator at 509.963.2405 or email

Cooperative Education (Co-op) is an educational plan designed to integrate classroom study with planned, supervised, and evaluated work experience that links the academic program with students' career goals and interests. It offers undergraduate and graduate students a unique opportunity to combine career, social, and personal growth with the educational process.
