Co-op is not an internship

How does a Drexel co-op differ from an internship?

Students are employed for a defined three-month or six-month period. Internships typically last two to three months.
 Co-op students do major related work within the guidelines of the academic program.  While a positive experience, interships are not necessarily major-related
 Most co-ops are paid positions.  Many internships are unpaid.
 Co-ops are for academic credit and part of a student's official transcript.  Internships are usually not a required part of the academic program
