In order for coursework in Cooperative Education to be counted as degree credit, department approval must be received during the semester in which the course is taken. This approval is in addition to approval to enroll in Cooperative Education coursework. Cooperative Education coursework, as with any coursework, must also be approved by the student’s advisory committee in order to be included on the degree plan. Only three semester credit hours of Cooperative Education may be counted toward the Master’s degree.
