Common definitions as approved by the Academic and Student Affairs Councils on July 20, 2017:

Cooperative Education: Cooperative education is an extended form of internship, where the student alternates periods at a work experience site with periods of classroom learning. Cooperative education experiences result in the award of course credits, and frequently are paid. Cooperative education will adhere to HLC requirements for formal agreements and clear learning objectives. Usually 45-60 hours of cooperative education will be equivalent to one credit hour. Cooperative education should also adhere to NACE guidelines.

Field Experience and/or Practicum: A practicum is an experience that allows work with professionals to practice the skills and knowledge they have acquired in the classroom. The purpose of a practicum is to provide a closely supervised activity where the student’s primary responsibility is to work with a professional who guides them in directing or conducting the activity. A field experience is defined as field-oriented supervised learning activities outside the college classroom that include a preplanned assessment of the experience, registration during the term the experience is conducted, and post evaluation with the instructor. As an example, a student in a teaching practicum might observe a classroom, assist with lessons and then prepare and present lessons. Often a student will write a report or similarly document the practicum to earn course credit. A practicum is usually unpaid, and will adhere to HLC requirements for formal agreements and clear learning objectives. Usually 45-60 hours of a practicum or field experience will be equivalent to one credit hour.

Internship: An internship is an opportunity for students to apply their learning in a work experience. In an internship, the student is assigned significant responsibilities and duties that are to be performed in a supervised environment. An internship includes an agreement between faculty, the student, and the internship host that detail the expectations for the student and the duties the student will perform. Completion of the agreed upon duties result in the award of course credit. Internships can be paid or unpaid, but paid internships are encouraged by the National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE). An internship will adhere to HLC requirements for formal agreements and clear learning objectives. Usually 45-60 hours of internship will be equivalent to one credit hour. An internship should also adhere to National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) guidelines.
