Student/faculty ratio

Lakeland’s Cooperative Education program offers students a unique way to earn a bachelor’s degree. Lakeland students work in full-time, academic credit-bearing positions for partner companies, earning 12-18 months of professional work experience and networking opportunities while progressing towards their degree. Between scholarships and wages, co-op students may earn up to $100,000 in four years, significantly reducing or eliminating post-graduation debt. Lakeland has partnered with more than a dozen area employers (and the list is growing) that provide students with jobs, often in their field of study. Lakeland is the first school of its type in the Upper Midwest fully offering co-op.



Teachers and coaches take the interest and the time to really know you, to challenge you and to prepare you to do great things. If you’re looking for a student-centered place where you can find the right major, the right career path and all the opportunities and support you need to excel, come to Lakeland and be a big fish. Be a Muskie.
