SoE Co-Op Program

  • The Cooperative education is a college program that integrates classroom studies with paid, productive, real-life work experience in a degree related field. The SPSP internship program and the SOE CD internship program require that the participating student complete a co-op form.  The co-op program requires the student participating in the internship program to enroll in a co-op course.  The UNM co-op program provides students with the opportunity to have their experience reflected on their transcript but will not impact the student’s GPA.
