  • While you’re there, you’ll want to make an appointment to meet with a Co-op coordinator, who will introduce the Co-op process to you, review guidelines and provide feedback on your Co-op resume. You’ll want to schedule your first meeting with a coordinator at least one full semester in advance of the semester in which you want to begin the Co-op.
