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.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view any pdf files. It can be download for free from the Adobe website.

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.
