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 - December (Six-month co-op experience)
  • Summer only (usually June - August, much like that of an internship)

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 (pdf). 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.
