Cooperative Education Internships
The Cooperative Education Program provides students with an opportunity to: (1) explore career goals while working with skilled and knowledgeable professionals, (2) enhance employment opportunities at graduation by providing career-related work experience while students are still in college, (3) help defray college expenses, and (4) gain college credit (in some departments). Co-op students work with such diverse and innovative companies as Alco Chemical, Decosimo CPA, Evergreen Financial Services, Microsoft, TVA, Merck, NASA, and Shaw Industries, as well as a number of local and regional firms who have developed Co-op Education programs.
Cooperative Education is an optional educational program that combines a student's academic study and paid major-related work experience. The UTC Office of Cooperative Education offers three basic modes of student participation: (1) alternating Co-op, (2) parallel Co-op, and (3) the internship. The two Co-op plans offer students the opportunity to work multi-semesters. Students choosing the alternating plan alternate semesters of full-time study with semesters of full-time work. The parallel plan allows students to attend classes while working with local employers for up to 25 hours a week. The Co-op Office also works with students to help find full-time or part-time semester paid internships.
To be eligible, students must (1) be enrolled at UTC, (2) have completed freshman course requirements in their major, and (3) have a institutional cumulative GPA of 2.50 (2.75 for business majors). After placement, students must maintain a 2.0 GPA, complete all assigned work periods, and register for a non-credit class that certifies them as a UTC co-op student. The program is offered to students in all UTC curricula. For more information, contact the Co-op Office, 326 University Center, (423) 425-4735, or check out our website: www.utc.edu/Administration/CooperativeEducation.
The Counseling and Career Planning Center offers a variety of services to students. These services include personal, vocational, academic counseling, and crisis intervention for individuals and groups. Consultation services, workshops and other programs are developed and available for the University community.
The staff or the Center includes professionally trained counselors and a psychologist who have achieved appropriate certification and/or licensure at the state and national levels. Graduate students work under the supervision of the Center's professional staff, and are given responsibilities commensurate with their training.
Issues for which students receive counseling include finding a major, relationship difficulties, roommate issues, difficulty in classes, adjusting to college, family issues, depression, anxiety, and other mental health concerns. Students may walk into the Center for their first appointment during the hours of 9:00 a.m. to Noon, and 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. If a student is experiencing a crisis or emergency, he or she may be seen at any time during business hours, or after hours call campus security to reach the counselor on call.
Services of the Counseling and Career Planning Center are confidential. The services are free to students with the exception of career, learning, or mental health assessment instruments. The need for such assessments may be discussed with a counselor during the first visit. Students may contact the Center by phone at (423) 425-4438, or come to the Center in room 338 of the University Center..

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga adopts email as an official means of communication with students.
Each student, upon enrolling, is issued a UTC email account with an address on the utc.edu domain. This is the account used for University business and official University communications to students. Students are expected to regularly check their UTC accounts for University communications. Students may use the UTC account for personal communication at their discretion.
