Questions about Co-op (EAS 496) vs. Internship (Departmental 496) can be directed to Dr. Andrew Olewnik, Director of Experiential Learning.
Students taking less than 12 credit hours should consider EAS 496 to maintain full-time status. Maintaining a full-time student status can protect student health insurance, loan deferment, and possible immigration status.
Student secures internship and works with department to apply (may require a statement of work, estimated hours, formal documentation from employer)
International students must attain CPT approval by working with ISSS and department
