How to Enroll 

Cooperative Education Eligibility:

Cooperative Work Experience Education (CWEE) requires a structured work environment and supportive supervisors or mentors to collaborate in overseeing student learning objectives. The application requires students, in partnership with their supervisor, to create measurable objectives to be achieved during the semester of enrollment.


The student must be employed, volunteering or interning prior to registering for Cooperative Education. Self-employed students, temps, substitutes, informal childcare providers and homecare providers are not eligible.
