Co-op Process

Once you have an official offer – take note of the next steps:

  • Forward a copy of official offer letter and your resume to co-op@rpi.edu
  • Attend a required co-op briefing – dates are listed in JobLink under “Events” and then under “Workshops”
  • Please read the Co-op Guide as part of your registration process.

To maintain your student status, you will have to register your co-op with the CCPD. Your offer letter must be on company letterhead or from an official company email and must contain:

  • Start date and end date
  • Your rate of pay
  • Description of the work you will be doing.

At your briefing, you will get the paperwork needed to begin the registration process. Your co-op is first approved by our office – and then approved by your academic advisor. Once your paperwork has been turned into our office, we will register you for your co-op. If you have any questions, contact Dawn Cairns-Weaver, Director of the Co-op Program, at cairnd@rpi.edu.

Please note:

  • Graduate student co-op approval process includes approval from your GPD as well as OGE.
  • International students required approval from ISSS.
