On-Campus Hiring For on-campus positions, make sure you complete all requirements for hiring a student. On-Campus Hiring Procedures Co-Ops Cooperative Education opportunities are degree related and are supervised by professionals. These positions are always paid and are offered to students for multiple semesters. Work assignments can alternate with school semesters (Alternating Program) or run simultaneously with school semesters (Parallel Program). Because experiential learning programs are academic programs, we work in conjunction with the Student Success Center, which means we also focus on our students' academic progress. We want to make sure that students are receiving the support they need academically while they are receiving outstanding experience in their field. When students work through our office, we help ensure that they stay on a positive track toward graduation. Co-ops and internships should run concurrently with the university's academic calendars. Average Co-op Salaries (based on Academic Year 2014/2015) Sophomores $15.00/hourJuniors $18.00/hourSeniors $21.00/hourMasters/PhD $23.00/hour Internships Internships can be credit bearing or non-credit bearing. To receive credit for an internship, a student must have a complete job description to present to his/her advisor for approval. Once the position has been approved, the student may begin employment based upon the employer's needs. Internships are one-semester work assignments that are degree related and supervised by professionals. These positions are typically paid and are generally offered during the summer. Please notify Career Services when presenting a job offer to a student for either co-ops or internships.
