Students who accept a co-op job are expected to create a work term and academic course plan.
The plan should include the current semester through their expected graduation date; specifying the terms that they are scheduled to be at work and the courses that they intend to take during the academic semesters.
The student should share this plan with their academic advisor prior to their first work term and ask the advisor to explain any concerns.
The student and advisor should communicate during advising week each semester to review and adjust the plan. If the student is unable to meet in-person due to their work schedule or location, email communication will suffice. The student's registration hold will be removed when the course plan is approved by the academic advisor.
When creating a co-op plan, academic courses must be rearranged in order to accommodate work terms. It is important to remember:
- Graduation requirements are determined by your freshman-year bulletin (transfer students seek academic advising)
- You must complete pre-requisite requirements prior to your next academic term
- If the course is not offered at Marquette in the semester it is needed, consider finding the course that will transfer from another institution
- If you are considering taking a course at another institution, you must complete a transfer credit pre-approval form prior to enrolling in the course to verify the transfer
- Co-op students may enroll in no more than 2 courses during a co-op work term
- Courses taken concurrently during a work term may not interfere with the work-day and the student should seek approval from their employer for any work schedule modifications
- Some courses are not offered every semester; certain courses are offered in only-fall or only-spring terms
- Very few engineering courses are offered in summer
- Historic information for course offerings can be found in snapshot
- For future course offerings, consult the department offering the course
The below course lists were generated using the undergraduate bulletin for the
2012-2013 academic year. They include the academic requirements for each program as well as the pre-requisite information for each course.
These schedule tools are meant to assist you in planning your work/school schedules for the co-op program. The undergraduate bulletin listings take precedence over these schedule lists if there is a discrepancy.
If a mistake is found, please notify the industry relations office.
