Academic assignments must be completed throughout the semester in order to receive academic credit or a passing grade for your Internship or Co-op experience. While there is a minimum number of assignments, the final number is based on the program you are enrolled in and how many credits you'll be receiving. Any additional assignments, their topics, and their due dates will be agreed on with your Faculty Sponsor and added to your learning agreement.

Assignment Overview, Guidelines and Resources

Preparing for your Internship/Co-op:

Each student will be required to write 4-5 well written SMART learning objectives to ensure that each Internship and Co-op provides a student the opportunity to develop and apply skills, theories, and concepts from their courses and degree programs.  Academic Assignments should be based on this concept and help the student reflect on these concepts.
