Cooperative Education Students

Clemson University’s first priority is the health and well-being of students. As a participant in an off-campus experiential learning program, including Cooperative Education, you can pursue any of the options outlined below to fulfill the rotation of your co-op assignment:


  1. If provisions have been made for you to work remotely, you are encouraged to continue with your assignment through your previously established date of completion.
  2. If you are still physically reporting to your work site, you can:
    • Request the opportunity to work remotely until your assignment is complete or until government officials discontinue COVID-19 precautions, OR
    • Discontinue your assignment and return home, OR
    • Continue following the on-site work schedule of your host company if you feel safe and comfortable doing so.

Regardless of what course of action you choose, you will receive full academic credit for the work you’ve completed once you’ve submitted the final requirements for the program.

If you need assistance with establishing a certain course of action with your host company, please contact your co-op advisor. Feel free to seek advice and input from your family as you make this important decision. Thank you for your patience as we continue working towards the best possible resolution for co-op assignments.

Your host company has received a similar notification and we will encourage them to have a conversation with you about your particular situation.

Cooperative Education Company Partners

Clemson University’s first priority is the health and well-being of students. As the host company of a co-op student, we wanted to let you know the University has determined that students uncomfortable remaining in their co-op assignments may discontinue participation and still receive full academic credit.

Students who are now working remotely on their co-op assignments are being encouraged to continue through their previously established dates of completion. Students who are still reporting to their work sites have been encouraged to pursue one of the following options:

  1. Request the opportunity to work remotely until the assignment is over or until government officials discontinue COVID-19 precautions
  2. Continue following the on-site work schedule of their host company if the student feels safe and comfortable doing so
  3. Make arrangements to discontinue the assignment and return home

If the possibility exists for your student to work remotely, we would ask this option be offered first. If remote work is not a possibility, please speak with your student at your earliest convenience to explain the available alternatives so decisions can be made expeditiously. Students who discontinue their assignments may still have bills to pay while no longer having income to meet those costs, so please be as flexible and understanding as possible.

The co-op students you are hosting have been asked to provide information about their status and plan through a Google form. If you need to contact the co-op advisor for your students or the program director, Dr. Jeff Neal, we are providing that contact information below. Again, we are grateful for your partnership and wish the best for you during these challenging times.
