Students from any major may alternate semesters of on-campus study with academically-related, off-campus experience or may undertake such experience while enrolled in classes (a parallel placement). This program is tailored for sophomores, juniors, and seniors who seek 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 engaged 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 2.00 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.
Prerequisites: Sophomore, junior, or senior standing; 2.5 GPA; ability to complete required minimum hours at co-op site; approval of the CES internship coordinator; completion of learning agreement.
