BS Program : Co-op Policy

A minimum of 2 semesters and 2 summers of cooperative education, integrated throughout
the academic course of study, is required. Co-op experiences are
approved through the co-op office or through the department (if not
listed by the co-op office). 

“… and internationally too!”

Students should register for co-op on SIS and with the co-op office (Job Zone), which triggers evaluation forms to be sent to the employer. To receive credit for co-op, a student should:

  • Complete on-line student co-op evaluation form and print out for review
  • Submit forms to department office
  • Review student evaluation and employer evaluation with department personnel as needed

The following coop schedule must be followed:
