You will need to have a job offer letter to begin the registration process. You will also need to obtain a Co-Op Application Packet from the Co-Op Advisor (and a CPT Form if you are an international student).
1. Keep up-to-date with your Handshake account, where you can upload your résumé and search for jobs. Career Management Services may also email you directly about co-op job openings.
2. Search for a co-op job. Use resources such as Handshake, CareerShift, LinkedIn, Fall and Spring career expos, employer events, and your own personal contacts to find a co-op job. Career Management Services is available to assist you with job search, interview, cover letter, and résumé preparation.
3. Accept job offer. You should receive an offer letter from your new job. If you are an international student, ISSS will need a copy of this letter.
4. Complete the Co-Op Application Packet. If you are an international student, you will also need to complete the CPT Form for ISSS. After both forms are completed, the Co-Op Advisor will manually register you for the co-op course. You will be given a syllabus for your co-op course and it will be your responsibility to read it and turn in assignments by the deadlines listed.
*Please Note: Once classes have started, you may not change employers in the same semester you accepted employment for, and you must remain enrolled in the Cooperative Education program. Credit is not awarded retroactively, and you must be properly registered prior to the registration deadline.
