Timeline / Cycles of Co-op
UMass Lowell's Professional Co-op Program runs three cycles of co-op during the year*
- January - June (Six-month co-op experience)
- July - August (Six-month co-op experience)
- Summer only (usually June - August, much like that of an internship)
Not all majors/disciplines encourage all durations.
Employers may recruit for any and all cycles. To assist in understanding the recruitment cycle, we've put together a Suggested Timelines for Professional Co-op Recruitment document.
This document also highlights some of our key recruiting events.
Once you know your targeted cycle(s), get started by reviewing our "How to Hire a Co-op"
page, or go straight to posting the position on our CareerLINK recruiting system
and contact our Events Manager to schedule any on-campus recruiting events
