Graduating on a Co-op Term
Drexel University students are required to graduate from an in-class term in order to complete their education-work experience cycle. In response to changes in the universityís student profile a number of scenarios have been identified which can be considered cause to appeal for permission to graduate from a co-op cycle.
Students wishing to file a request to graduate from a co-op term must develop a revised plan of study in conjunction with their academic advisor. The advisor then submits the plan along with a letter of support from the program director or department head to Steinbright Career Development Centerís Associate Director for Cooperative Education. Requests are reviewed by the Steinbright Career Development Center Appeals Committee in consultation with the Executive Director/Associate Vice Provost.
Due to program requirements, students in certain programs/majors cannot graduate from a co-op term. Complications arise from academic and co-op as well as billing areas that would preclude any exceptions. Case by case appeals may be considered as above in truly unique situations.
Note: Changes to a standing academic plan carry billing and financial aid implications. SFS and SRC should be consulted along with academic advisor to determine the best path.
