Regulations and Grade System

The COOP Student will register for at least a semester and a summer in the COOP Practice course each time they attend a working period. Students will get the corresponding credit hours during the last practice, when they will be credited with nine credit-hours assigned in the free or technical electives category.

Upon registration in the COOP Practice Course for any working period, Co-op students are considered regular students at the school 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 on the first day of registration.
