Co-op courses must be approved by the MET Program Coordinator and Career Development Services. MET 395 Co-op Work Experience I is taken as an elective for degree credit. Students taking full time Co-op may only register for a maximum of 9 credits including Co-op. Students taking part time Co-op may only register for a maximum of 15 credits.

See the General Education Requirements  “Refer to the General Education Requirements for specific information for GER courses"

This curriculum represents the maximum number of credits per semester for which a student is advised to register.  A full-time credit load is 12 credits.  First-year students are placed in a curriculum that positions them for success which may result in additional time needed to complete curriculum requirements. Continuing students should consult with their academic advisor to determine the appropriate credit load.
