Co-op Options

Northeastern provides the flexibility to pursue co-op and other experiential opportunities in a way that fits individual education goals.

Full-time undergraduates can complete up to three six-month co-ops in five years or as many as two six-month co-ops in four years.

The semester dates are as follows:

January – June Cycle: Typical co-op work dates are January 2 – June 30.

July – December Cycle: Typical co-op work dates are July 1 – December 23.

*Some employers may adjust these dates slightly based on their work needs and holiday schedules.


NOTE: there are multiple possible schedules, and not all entering students will follow these particular examples. Students will work with their academic advisors and co-op coordinators to customize a schedule that best suits their goals and aspirations.
