Rockhurst University

This Career Services program provides an excellent opportunity to apply skills and knowledge in a professional work environment before graduation. Participants are able to make more informed decisions on their career direction after experience in their field of study.

Co-op is a paid, structured internship program with work periods corresponding in length to a semester or a summer break. Academic credit is earned for each work period based upon the number of hours completed. Undergraduate students can earn up to six (6) hours of elective credit toward degree requirements. In addition to academic credit, a letter grade is awarded based on the employer’s evaluation of the student’s work performance and an assigned work project paper submitted by the student.

To be eligible for the program, students must have completed 60 hours prior to the work period and maintained a minimum 2.0 GPA. Transfer students must complete one semester of full-time classes at Rockhurst University prior to starting a co-op work position.
