College of Professional Studies (CPS) Students

Undergraduate CPS and graduate CPS students are registered for the co-op experience placeholder course by the College of Professional Studies. If students have questions about co-op registration or registering for additional classes while on co-op, they should speak to their academic advisor.

Registration for Undergraduate and Graduate Students (non-CPS)

Registration into the co-op experience placeholder course begins one month prior to the term and is dependent on a complete job entry in NUcareers. Students need to work a full-time job more than one-half of the term to be registered for the co-op experience placeholder course.  Any questions about co-op registration should be directed to the student’s co-op coordinator.
