If I hire a co-op to work six months, is my company mandated to provide healthcare under the Affordable Care Act?
No. Co-ops are considered seasonal employees under the Affordable Care Act because they are “hired to work for a position that is customarily six months or less.” This stance is backed by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, with which University Career Services is affiliated.

Yes. Georgia State University is fortunate to be the destination for thousands of students from around the world. If offered a co-op, it is their responsibility to coordinate their work visa with the school. The process for employers is minimal.
