How Students Qualify

Students typically apply for Co-op positions during sophomore year in order to work during junior year. Students must have junior status, prior to the first work term. A cumulative GPA of 2.7 or better and a declared major by the end of sophomore year are required to participate.

How Students Get Started

Two Information Meetings are scheduled early in the fall semester each year for students to receive information about Co-op, ask questions, and indicate interest in participating. In-depth information about participation in the program is discussed at the meeting, and in order to qualify for participation in the Co-op Program, attendance to ONE of these meetings is mandatory.

Engineering Sophomores, Arts & Sciences Sophomores in Computer Science, and CALS Sophomores in Biological and Environmental Engineering, are strongly encouraged to attend one of the Co-op Information Meetings.

Co-op Information Meetings
Students interested in participating in Co-op MUST attend a Co-op Information meeting.

FALL 2017 Co-op Information Meetings were offered on September 18 and 19.

NOTE for Juniors interested in Co-op for the 2018-2019 academic year:
If you missed the Fall 2017 information meetings and are interested in participating in the Co-op Program, please contact the Engineering Career Center at 607-255-3512 to schedule a meeting.
