Do I have to register for UN 3002 to do a co-op or can I just skip it?

There are some consequences if you do not register for UN 3002.  If you are not registered for 2 credit of co-op then you will no longer be a full-time student.  This could impact your financial aid (loans or scholarships), visa status, or qualification for health insurance.  During the summer, however, most students do not need to maintain full-time status.  In this case whether or not to sign up for the co-op class is purely your choice.

For those students here on an F-1 visa, the Career Center recommends that you register for co-op credits during the summer as well.  By registering as a co-op student you are considered a full-time student and will not be utilizing your practical training time.

You may use up to 6 credits of co-op UN 3002 towards your technical electives (per Departmental vote 10Feb2016).  UN 3002, UN 3003, UN 3004, and UN 3005 are on the technical elective non-core list.  Any additional co-op credits above 6 can count towards free electives.
