If you are on financial aid and are considering participating in the Cooperative Education Program, contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid(OSFA) to learn how your earnings from a Co-op job could affect the amount and type of aid that you receive in the future.
- As a general rule, you shouldn’t expect to receive financial aid while you are on a Co-op rotation.
- While you are in a Co-op work assignment, keep a record of additional expenses you incur during your Co-op job. OSFA staff may consider these costs when reviewing your Co-op earnings.
- DO NOT collect your financial aid at the beginning of any semester in which you anticipate going on a Co-op work assignment. If you do collect aid and then go on assignment, you must pay back the full amount immediately.
- Contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid with additional details.
