Regulations and Grade System

The COOP Student will register for at least a semester and/or a summer in the COOP Practice course each time they attend a working period. Students will obtain the corresponding credits after finalizing their term. These credits hours can be used as a technical or free elective in their curriculum.

Upon registration in any working period, COOP students are considered regular students at the University with all rights, privileges and obligations this status entails, including financial assistance if the student qualifies. (See certification 94-94-69). When the students end their COOP term and return to the university they will have a registration priority for the next two semesters.
