Co-operative Education

Students will be considered for admission to semester one of the Co-operative Education program upon receipt of application and supporting academic documentation. Normally, a minimum average of 80% is required for consideration, but higher averages may be required for admission to individual programs where the demand by qualified applicants exceeds the supply of spaces. All students, including International applicants, are encouraged to explore Co-operative Education as an option.1

Specific subject requirements for admission to the various degree programs are outlined in a following section. In some cases, applicants may be required to submit a Background Information Sheet in support of their application. If a Background Information Sheet is required, Admission Services will forward information directly to the applicant upon receipt of the application.

Students who apply directly to a Co-op program and who are not admitted will be considered for the regular degree program during the third round of secondary school offers in May. Please refer to Co-operative Education Programs in Chapter X for further information.


Applicants to the Hospitality & Tourism Management co-op program should be aware that due to the Schedule of Studies for the program, a Fall start date is required. Students beginning their studies in the Winter semester cannot continue in co-op.
