Role of the Student

Roles & Responsibilities of the Student

For a Coop/Internship work session to be successful, the participating student and supervisor must establish an effective relationship. Students participating in the Cooperative Education and Internship Program must sign a "Student Agreement" in which they agree to execute certain responsibilities to the best of their ability.

Participating students agree to:

  • Maintain high academic standards and continue to make adequate progress toward their degree.
  • Remain on the agreed upon work/study path.
  • Maintain confidentiality in the workplace as defined by their Coop/Internship employers and sign any non-disclosure agreements prior to the commencement of work.
  • Abide by the rules of the workplace including dress code and safety practices, and perform the duties or tasks expected of them during the work session.
  • Set realistic learning objectives.
  • Write a Coop/Internship Work Session report for each Coop/Internship work session.

While working, Coop/Internship students are responsible for paying a Coop/Internship work session fee. This ensures that students continue to receive all benefits and perquisites afforded to on-campus, full-time students.
