This program is offered only through the co-op system of study. Students participate in the co-op process at their home institution, the university at which they are registered for the plan.
For Waterloo-registered students, the co-op process involves four (or five at a student's discretion) co-op work terms intermixed with study terms. The first of these work terms occurs during the May-to-August period between the second and third study terms. The complete sequencing of terms for Waterloo-registered students is listed in the study/work sequence chart. Students in this plan will be required to pay six co-op fees, which are usually assessed in the first three years of study.
For Laurier-registered students, the co-op process involves three (or four at a student's discretion) co-op work terms intermixed with the ten study terms. The first of these work terms occurs during the January-to-April period between the third and fourth study terms. The earlier May-to-August period between the second and third study terms is an "off" term (where students are on their own for the term, similar to regular students). With the exception of this first May-to-August term being an "off" term rather than a co-op work term, the term sequencing for Laurier-registered students is identical to the one for Waterloo-registered students.
