Co-op

Co-op Under Semesters

Each program requires the co-op position to be:

  • an experience related to the students discipline.
  • a full-time paid position for the dates of the term per the co-op calendar.
  • supervised and evaluated.

As an employer, you can plan on year-round student coverage.

  • In two section programs you can hire two students to alternate and fill one equivalent full-time position.
  • In one section (single section) programs, you can still hire two student to alternate, however, the students will need to be from different class years.
