Cooperative Education (Co-op) provides practical work experience in an occupation or profession. The co-op work experience is typically full-time and is a six (6) month commitment, with the ability to renew for up to two (2) years. During a co-op, students may only take a part-time courseload in order to best support academic balance. Junior or senior year would be the best time for the most rewarding experience, especially if only taking one co-op rotation.
Co-op experience helps you...
Although co-ops are not required, it is strongly recommended for all students to gain valuable work experience prior to completing their education. Internships are typically shorter in duration; either full-time in the summer or part-time during the semester.
Co-ops may also be used to fulfill the internship or field practicum requirements that are required by certain majors for graduation. You would need to discuss this possibility with your advisor so the proper arrangements can be made to receive credit.
The Student Center reviews Co-op applications on a rolling basis for the next semester. If actively hiring, open positions would be posted on Handshake, via the Career Development Office. Every student has an account in Handshake and can apply to positions, as well as, create and post a resume, cover letter, etc. Please review other pertinent information about Cooperative Education positions HERE.
