CP 297/397/497 Cooperative Education

Credits: 1 to 3

Applied, monitored and supervised field-based learning experience for which the student may or may not be paid. Students gain practical experience; they follow a negotiated and or directed plan of study established between the student, instructor and field experience supervisor. Due to the presence of a field experience supervisor, a lower level of supervision is provided by the instructor in these courses than is the case in an internship or practicum course. Students must satisfy departmental co-op requirements, which include a written report of the co-op work experience and an employer’s evaluation, to earn credit for the course. Minimum GPA and other co-op eligibility requirements vary among employers. Because the work performed by a student while on co-op is equivalent to the workload on a full-time student, a student on co-op assignment who is registered for CP credit shall be considered to have full-time status.
