Student Employment

A Student's credentials are provided to companies with job openings that match the student's interest and skills. The employers choose appropriate applicants to interview and make all hiring decisions. The student is responsible for informing the ACE Office when s/he has been hired or is no longer interested in pursuing Co-op opportunities. There are times that the Co-op Advisor will notify the student of interview opportunities.

Work Term Evaluation

Normally, each student's supervisor is visited in person or by phone during a semester by the ACE coordinator. Meetings afford the opportunity for a frank exchange of views on all aspects of the job and the student's performance. Regular guidance and review of the student's progress are important factors contributing to the success of the student's work assignment. In order to continue in the ACE program, students must maintain the academic standing as defined by their respective employer. They must also successfully complete the requirements of the related ACE class.

Your final grade for each ACE course is based on the following criteria:

  • Employer's evaluation of the student (including results of the coordinators work site/phone discussions).
  • Attendance and required work from related ACE course.

The final grade is recorded on the student's official academic record

NOTE: ACE courses are NOT offered spring/summer
