Cooperative Education and Internships

The Co-op Office helps qualifying students to locate employment directly related to their majors or career goals. Students currently employed in a position related to their academic studies may also enroll in the program.

Most students participate in Co-op on a "parallel plan," attending class full-time while working part-time.

The Co-op Program is available to all students provided the following requirements have been met:


  • 2.0 grade point average 
  • Two required courses in your major, completed with "C" or better 
  • 12 college credit hours completed 


In order to participate in Cooperative Education/Internship Program, please provide our office an internship position description for each opening. You can e-mail the information to or contact Career Services for a job posting form. Your completed form can be faxed to (708) 583-3108.

Once the student has completed the appropriate paperwork and has met the Cooperative Education requirements, we will fax the appropriate student resume, under our fax cover sheet, to the designated personnel at your company.

After your review of the resumes, you may contact the students directly to arrange an interview schedule. When you have decided to hire a student, they must visit the Cooperative Education Office for the required paperwork and registration.

Should you need to speak with the faculty advisor or the Cooperative Education coordinator, please feel free to contact us at (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3789.
