Students who complete the requirements for the co-op plan will receive the co-op designation on their diploma when they graduate from Georgia Tech.
In order to receive the co-op designation, students must satisfy the following requirements:
- Work at least three(3) alternating semesters, two of which must be during a fall or spring semester. Work must be full-time 40 hours/week for 12-14 weeks during summer and 16-18 weeks during fall or spring. Register for appropriate COOP course for each term.
- Receive satisfactory Performance Evaluations from supervisor for all work terms.
- Submit Work Report for each work term.
During the semester before the term of graduation, students should follow the procedures of their academic unit regarding their degree petition. Co-ops should check online to be sure the degree includes the co-op designation. If the co-op designation is missing, co-ops should contact the Center for Career Discovery and Development for assistance.
