Engineering Co-op Program

  • Engineering Co-op Program students seeking financial aid should complete the Continuing Student Financial Aid Application process by March 1st if you expect to register for summer enrollment.
  • For students with a fall or spring placement, summer is considered part of your academic year and is included as part of your initial financial aid package.
  • Your Summer Savings Expectation (SSE) may increase due to your earnings from your placement. If you cannot meet the SSE requirement, proceed with the standard SSE replacement process.
  • If you are enrolling in Engineering Co-op classes during the summer, but are NOT a Program student, you may be eligible for summer loans. Please proceed with the Summer Session Aid Application.
  • For additional program information, please contact the Engineering Career Center.
