What is a Co-Op?
The Undergraduate Co-op (Co-operative Education) Program is a non-credit, paid work experience that complements and reinforces classroom learning while allowing undergraduate students to maintain active student status. It differs from an internship in that students work full time at a company for 4-8 months, including part of the academic year. Co-op increases awareness of the day-to-day operations of career opportunities and exposes students to professional standards and the methods used to accomplish objectives in a business environment. Co-op is not for academic credit.
