A Co-op experience is usually a full-time position, one semester and/or summer in length. Some employers prefer two term positions, January through August, or May through December. Some students complete two or more Co-op experiences with the same employer at upgraded levels, alternating with a semester on campus. The number of Co-op experiences varies from one to several.
A parallel Co-op, consisting of combining part-time work with part-time school, is possible when Co-ops are within commuting distance of UW-Stout.
