Registering for Classes during Co-op
Please note: In response to the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the University has created a temporary policy for Spring/Summer 2021 co-op students who are unable to secure a position. View the temporary policy and FAQ here.
Effective Date: 9/10/2018

PURPOSE AND APPLICATION
In an effort to better integrate academic coursework with a student’s cooperative education experience, undergraduate students enrolled in a Co-op education program may register for up to six (6) credits during each term for which they are on a Co-op assignment; of the six, four (4) may be taken without additional charge.
STATEMENT OF POLICY
A full-time undergraduate student registered for a cooperative education term is permitted to register for a maximum of six (6) credits of coursework. Up to four (4) undergraduate credits of coursework may be taken without tuition charge. If more than (4) credits are taken while on co-op, the additional credit(s) is/are billed on a per-credit basis. If a student wishes to take more than 6 credits during a co-op work term, the student must receive prior approval from the Steinbright Appeals Committee.
Registration for course(s) on co-op is subject to the approval of both the student's co-op advisor and academic advisor. The co-op advisor will ensure that the request does not interfere with the student's co-op assignment; upon approval by the co-op advisor, the academic advisor will review the request in accordance with the student’s plan of study.
Registration is subject to course availability within established enrollment limits. Closed Section Overrides will not be granted, no new course sections will be added, and students may not wait list for a closed section.
Registration for courses during co-op begins Week 9 of the term prior to term of enrollment through a time ticket in DrexelOne.

NOTES / CONSIDERATIONS
Registering for Classes on Co-op terms
A student who wishes to add a course while participating in a co-op experience may register for course(s) beginning Week 9 of the term prior to term of enrollment through an online time ticket in DrexelOne. After the time ticket has closed, students must complete the Classes During Co-op Form.
The Steinbright Career Development Center will audit registration completed via the online time ticket and remove registration that does not meet previously stated guidelines. For registration completed via the Classes During Co-op Form, eligibility verification requires that the student meets with and secures the signature of the respective co-op advisor before meeting with his/her academic advisor. The co-op advisor will ensure that the requested course does not interfere with the student’s co-op assignment and in some cases may outreach to the co-op employer to determine such.
