All United States Work Term data reported in US Dollars (USD).

*While students from all faculties complete co-op work terms in the United States, only those with sufficient sample have been reported. Please note that only 10% of all co-op work terms in 2017 were located in the United States.

All hourly earnings data has been self-reported by students, and compiled by Co-operative and Experiential Education (CEE) for the 2017 calendar year. Note that student-reported earnings have not been validated by other sources, and that earnings cannot be compared to the 2016 report due to revised methodology.

Hourly earnings data does not include the value of alternative remuneration provided by employers. For example, the value of food, lodging and transportation reimbursements provided to some students have not been reported. In addition, hourly earnings data does not reflect earnings from potential overtime pay.
