Academic Career Experience - Certificate Of Achievement


Program Code: CBZ.35100

Academic Career Experience (ACE), commonly known as "Cooperative (Co-op) Education," is a structured educational strategy integrating classroom studies with learning through productive, paid work experiences in a field related to a student's academic or career goals. It provides progressive experiences in integrating theory and practice. ACE is a collaboration among students, employers, and Delta College; and it provides academic credit for structured job experience.

A Certificate of Achievement in Academic Career Experience will be awarded at the completion of the Year I Experience (6 credits). An additional 4 credits can be earned if the Year II Experience is completed (10 credits total). Additional credit may also be earned through internships and/or special projects.
