for students

Real-World Learning

You are eligible for the co-op program if you are taking courses online. We work with students who are unable to travel to the Boston, Seattle, or Charlotte regions in the following ways:

  • Registration in the online section of Preparing for Experiential Learning;  COP 5001 (graduate course) and COP 4500 (undergraduate course)
    • This course will build upon resume, cover letter, interview, job prep, and get you access to the coop and internship database, NEXUS.
  • Skype or phone consult with your Experiential Learning Advisor after you have met with your Academic Advisor/Career Coach in regards to your goals around Co-op, internship, and XN projects.
  • Your Academic/Career coach can help you map out your academic and career plan and how to start getting on the path for experiential learning.
  • You want to meet with your Experiential Learning Advisor after you have a plan, know you’re eligible, and are prepared.
  • Experiential Learning Advisors directly refer you to co-op and internships on the database, NEXUS.
