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.
