Congratulations! Before accepting an offer for employment in an engineering co-op assignment, students should review the requirements and policies below. Then submit the Application for Engineering Co-op Program. Students may also submit the Engineering Co-op Financial Aid Agreement to determine if they are eligible for additional federal aid.
C_OP 300 is a 1-hr course administered by the Dean’s Office with benefits of a tuition scholarship for enrolled students. Students are responsible for paying a course fee of $65 plus a pro-rated Capital Improvements Fee and Student Activity Fee (approximately $10) for each co-op assignment. Additional fees may be charged to the student’s Bursar account, as applicable, including Greek fees, housing fees, Flex Dollars, meal plans, pre-existing balance or late fees, etc.

The Dean’s Office recommends attending the Fall and Spring Engineering, Manufacturing, and Technology Career Fair to meet prospective employers. Students can also access available positions through Handshake, the university’s on-line job-search platform. The UM Career Center located in 303 Martindale is available to provide assistance.
