Credit-bearing Internships and Cooperative Education

Credit-bearing Internships and Cooperative Education are academic courses that combine your academic studies with a work experience related to your major.  In this semester-long course, you will work with your faculty co-op/intern advisor and your employer to establish learning objectives to be achieved throughout the semester.  The credits earned will be reflected on your transcript and the related work experience will make you more attractive to employers after graduation.  Check with your academic advisor or with the Office of Career Services to learn how the co-op/intern program can work for you.

Basic Eligibility Criteria

  • Have a minimum 2.0 GPA (higher GPA requirement may be set by academic department).
  • Have finished the majority of the coursework in your major and be nearing completion of your CCM degree.
  • Your work experience must be concurrent with the semester in which you are registered for the co-op or internship credit courses.
