Cooperative Education & Work-Based Learning Credit Courses

Cooperative education is an academic program for undergraduate and graduate students who wish to combine classroom studies with academically related employment by being placed locally and nationally in paid work experiences closely related to their academic majors.

Enrollment in cooperative education courses for graduate credit can be made only through those programs that have an approved graduate-level course (numbered 700 and above) titled Cooperative Education. No other course titles such as independent study, special topics and so forth can be used for cooperative education enrollment. Co-op courses are graded Cr/NCr.

Graduate students in good academic standing desiring to participate in cooperative education classes should first consult with their program and the Graduate School. Some programs do not allow cooperative education credits to be used toward graduate degree completion.
