Interested students can sign up to attend Professional Co-op Information Sessions by logging into CareerLINK.
Information sessions provide students with an in-depth understanding of the co-op process, the services offered to co-op students and expectations of participating students and employers.
Interested students also fill out and submit an application. Check out the Co-op Student Handbook (pdf).
This action initiates the co-op program selection process but does NOT guarantee students a spot in the Professional Co-op Program or the required Professional Development Seminar.
Students selected for the program will be notified and will be registered for the first step in the program which is the required 1-credit, graded Professional Development Seminar.
