3. Fill out agreement stating four objectives and have your boss/supervisor at work sign this form. Objectives can be projects you take on, training you receive or new responsibility in your position. If you have already been working in this position, the objectives must be tasks that are above and beyond what you normally do in your job. Your grade for the class is based on accomplishing these objectives.

6. I will fill out a self directed study registration form for the co-op course, CWE 101, and leave the form in registration. When the form is ready and in registration, I will e-mail you to let you know. Then you can phone registration, tell them you are registering for co-op, and that the form is over there. Registration will know what to do.
