Co-operative work experience

What is Cooperative Work Experience (COOP)?

COOP is an academic course that allows you to earn elective credit for learning that takes place at your job or internship. There are three different COOP courses. Students can earn up to a total of 16 COOP units.

COOP Courses: 

COOP-160 (2-3 units): For students whose current job does not relate to their academic and/or career goal.

COOP-170 (2-4 units): For students whose current job relates to their academic and/or career goal.

COOP-180 (2-4 Units): For students working in a paid/unpaid internship or volunteer position that relates to their academic and/or career goal.

Choose the right course and unit amount based on number of hours worked
