Pay Rates

Money, cash, the green stuff. Ah yes, the eternal question, "Will I be paid?". The answer is...probably (but not definitely). Most Co-op assignments are paid experiences. However, for some Co-ops, the experience is unpaid. This doesn't mean that these Co-op assignments are not as good as the paid ones. Think of them as an investment in your future. Co-op students typically make between $6.00 and $15.00 per hour, depending on the field. The following is a small listing of salary ranges for Co-op students in different majors.
