Disclaimer:
If you have already secured a co-op site, or are using a current employer as your co-op site, then you must visit the Advising, Career & Transfer Services office to meet with a Cooperative Education Student Development Specialist no later than 2 weeks prior to the start of the semester you wish to do the co-op. Students who do not meet with a Cooperative Education Student Development Specialist by this time will be unable to participate in the cooperative education experience for the semester.

If you have NOT already secured a co-op site, then we strongly recommend that you start the process early in the semester prior to the one in which you want to earn credit. You must meet with a Cooperative Education Student Development Specialist no later than 6 weeks prior to the start of the semester, and would need to have secured your co-op site no later than 2 weeks prior to the start of the semester you wish to do the co-op. Students who do not meet these deadlines will be unable to participate in the cooperative education experience for the semester.
