Co-op Probation

If a student does not adhere to the policies of Drexel University, Steinbright, and/or the co-op employer during the co-op process, a student may be required to attend a probation meeting during which time the terms of co-op probation are determined.

Reasons for a probation meeting may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Refusal to honor employment secured through SCDCOnline
  • Termination from a co-op experience
  • Engaging in inappropriate behavior anytime during the co-op process
  • Failure to obtain approval for a co-op position
  • Failure to obtain proper work authorization
  • Violations of Steinbright policy
  • Violations of University policy

Co-op probation is designed to help students learn from their mistakes before graduating and to be better prepared for the professional workplace. Probation is tailored to the individual situation. If a student is placed on co-op probation, the terms of the probation may include one or more of the following: a probation letter, denied access to SCDCOnline and/or Handshake, additional assignments, removal from the co-op program, and/or a failed work term(s).
