Cooperative Education

Cooperative education, or co-op for short, is full-time, paid work experience in your field of study. And it sets RIT graduates apart from their competitors. It’s exposure–early and often–to a variety of professional work environments, career paths, and industries. RIT co-op is designed for your success.

Students in the accounting technology program are required to complete a cooperative education experience prior to graduation. You may schedule your co-op after completing your second-year academic requirements.
