What is Drexel Co-op?

Drexel Cooperative Education (Co-op) is a renowned collegiate program and the essence of the Drexel Difference. Close School students spend a minimum of six months (two terms) to eighteen months (six terms), working in positions that allow them to apply classroom skills to hands-on experience within their chosen professions. Co-op affords the opportunity to learn about a specific career path and to work with other professionals to acquire skills and experience that ultimately set Drexel graduates apart from graduates of traditional academic settings.

What are the Co-ops like for Close School students?

Students enrolled in the Close School have a variety of options to complete their co-ops. Students can select from the following degree options:

  • 5 year, 3 Co-op
  • 4 year, 1 Co-op
  • 4 year, no Co-op
  • 3 year, no Co-op

For examples of co-op experiences held by Close School students, please visit the Co-op Fast Facts by College page. Students have worked in various industries ranging from marketing, consulting, design, sustainability, non-profits, start-ups and more. In addition to the traditional co-op experience, students from any major can apply to the Entrepreneurship Co-op, where you can earn $15,000 to start your own business. We recommend reaching out to our Assistant Director of Academic Services at jcr326@drexel.edu if you have specific questions.

Who do I contact if I am a transfer student to the Close School?

Please reach out to our Assistant Director of Academic Services, Julia Ross at jcr326@drexel.edu.

What is the 3-year degree program?

The three-year degree in entrepreneurship and innovation offered by the Close School is rigorous and sustains all the standards of our four-year and five-year degree programs. It is a degree that is particularly appealing to the student who is determined, disciplined, and goal oriented – as we find that many entrepreneurship students are. Students who select the three-year degree will complete eleven terms of classes, including a hands-on practicum experience. There are no co-ops for this degree option. For further questions on the three-year degree program and to better understand the differences in our degree offerings, please contact Senior Academic Advisor, Rita Berson at rk25@drexel.edu.

How can I confirm my enrollment for Fall 2020?
