MATC students will have access to Lakeland’s Cooperative Education program, which creates full- and part-time job opportunities for students through co-op partner employers and tackles the student debt issue. MATC students can earn college credit for their work experiences and earn wages to help pay for school, putting them in a position to reduce or eliminate post-graduation tuition debt.
This co-op model is unique to Lakeland and we’re excited to be able to expand it to MATC students. Lakeland's co-op and credit-for-prior-learning options recognize the importance of work and experiential learning, and students are earning impressive work experience with global companies.
