COOP 499

Co-operative Education

Students from any major may alternate semesters of on-campus study with academically-related, off-campus work experience or may undertake such work while enrolled in classes (a 'parallel placement'). This program is tailored for sophomores, juniors, and seniors who seek paid work experience and a head start on their career objectives while still in school. Activity credit in the range of 0.25 to 1.0 unit may be awarded for each concurrent placement based on the number of hours worked at the co-op site. COOP 499 must be taken pass/fail. This course is not applicable to the Upper-Division Graduation Requirement. As activity credit, a co-op is included in the limit of 1.50 units of activity credit that may be applied to a bachelor's degree. Apart from the activity unit limit, no more than a total of 2.0 units of co-ops combined with internships may be applied to a bachelor's degree.
