Wilmington University’s CAP (Community & Academic Partnerships)/Co-op program is an academic program that allows students to connect academic knowledge with the business and professional world. The CAP/Co-op program expands learning experiences through paid employment in a supervised, educational work setting related to the student’s major field of study or career focus.
A CAP/Co-op program experience is a multi-semester program (2 minimum, with a maximum of 3, ideally consecutive) with in-state and out-of-state opportunities. CAP/Co-op course enrollment is required for credit to be awarded for the experience. CAP/Co-op program positions require a minimum of 100 hours of work per semester.
CAP/Co-op job experiences are not guaranteed because there are many factors that may affect availability, including the employment market. Therefore, faculty in the Cooperative Education department cannot control, predict or guarantee whether you will be offered a co-op experience in the semester you desire to work.
CAP/Co-op confirmations of job assignments/offers are left to the discretion of the employer and only the employer.
