How can I get into a co-op program?

If you are an Engineering student

You will move automatically into co-op once you start your degree studies, since Engineering programs are offered only through the co-op system of study.

If you applied to a co-op program

You will be automatically enrolled in co-op after you successfully complete BASE, except if you applied to Arts and Business or Honours Arts.

  • If you were admitted to one-term Arts/BASE, you must complete one full degree term in the regular version of the Arts and Business or Honours Arts program before you can apply to transfer to co-op.  If you've been admitted to iBASE or two term Arts/BASE, you will move automatically into the co-op program when you begin degree studies.

To apply for co-op

  • Follow the steps provided by your faculty's Undergraduate Office.
  • Your marks must be higher than those of other students applying for co-op.
  • You may need to wait for a co-op student to drop out of the program to make room for you.
