Webster University’s Shaw Air Force Base campus location was recently chosen to assist in recruiting students for A Student Career Experience Program (SCEP). SCEP is an educational process that integrates college level academic study with full time work experience in cooperating employer agencies.
This arrangement allows the student, through the interaction of both study and work experiences, to enhance academic knowledge, personal development, financial assistance and professional preparation.
Some of the requirements are as follows:
* Eligible individuals must be enrolled as a degree-seeking student, and be taking at least a half-time course load in an accredited school.
* They must also have and maintain at least a 3.0 for graduate/PhD degree levels.
* Students may be non-competitively converted to a career entry position into the Federal workforce when they have:
a. Completed within the preceding 120-calendar days, at an accredited school, course requirements conferring a degree.
b. Completed at least 640 hours of career-related work, before completion of or concurrently with, the course requirements.
c. Been recommended by the employing agency in which the career-related work was performed
d. Met the qualification standards for the targeted position to which the student is appointed.
Webster University – Shaw Air Force Base is proud to be selected for this program, and congratulates its participants from Webster’s Procurement and Acquisitions Management degree program.
