When do students work?
Ohio University is on a semester system with 15-week sessions. The four-week break between fall and spring semesters, however, allows for a longer work rotation. The four-week break alone does not count as a co-op or intern work period. Because students receive academic credit for each work assignment, the work period must be at least 15 weeks. Students may work in any combination of term(s) that they coordinate with you.
How do I participate?
How much should I pay my co-ops or interns?
Co-op and intern students earn more than summer part-time help. Pay is determined by many factors—company, major, number of work rotations, academic rank—but the average hourly pay is about $18. Some employers may assist with housing, transportation, or travel expenses. You determine your co-op and internship salaries, which are typically two-thirds of what a beginning bachelor’s degree graduate would earn.
