Co-op Registration Process
for Engineering and Computer Science Students

The number of units earned for a co-op depends on the number of total hours worked per semester. If you work full-time you can earn up to (12) undergraduate units and (9) graduate units. If you work part-time, you can earn between 2-6 units. International students must sign up for (12) units if undergraduate and (9) units if graduate.

Your co-op coordinator will work with your academic department to enroll students in the proper course, section and units.
