In order for a student to take a class while on co-op, the student must first have a conversation with Financial Aid. Many times students do not realize the financial ramifications of being on co-op and taking a class at the same time. If after talking to Financial Aid a student still wants to request to take a class whie on co-op, the student must meet with their Academic Advisor for approval. The Academic Advisor will discuss where this course fits into your degree completion. If the request is approved, the student will only be permitted to enroll in a maximum of one course while on co-op.
