Full-time

  • 35+ hours per week
  • 15-18 weeks (semester)
  • Required for CEAS, DAAP, and IT
  • On-site, remote, or on-campus

Full-time co-op positions run slightly longer than University semesters. With UC, co-op employers can achieve year-round staffing coverage with no gaps. In other words, one co-op ends on Friday and the next starts the following Monday.

As a rule, we suggest you post your job at the start of the semester prior to your desired staffing dates.

While employed, students typically follow the employer’s holiday schedule, not the University’s.

Tables below show specific dates for the next several terms.
