University Employer Co-op Forms

GENERAL INFORMATION

Co-ops/internships are programs that provide meaningful work experience for FAU students, while fulfilling your employment needs. It is a three way partnership between the student, the employer, and the Career Development Center. The co-op education program provides an invaluable career development tool. As part of their academic careers, co-op students can alternate or combine their university education program time with on-the-job experiences directly related to their academic majors in business, industry, or governmental orginizations. Co-op students earn a salary and may be eligble to receive credit pending departmental approval.
