Breakdown of fees
- Students in the Co-op stream are required to pay a $750 administrative co-op fee for each work term. These non-refundable fees are set by the University.
- Co-op students are also responsible for tuition and incidental fees related to their study terms.
- Tuition is paid as normal during academic terms, but is not required during work terms.
How your fees are utilized
Your $750 Co-op fee goes towards a variety of aspects involved in the administration of our Co-op streams. This includes funding resource development, fostering employer relationships, and new job development. Funding also supports infrastructure and administration of the Co-op programs.
OSAP and co-op funding
Co-op students are eligible to apply for OSAP during their study terms. You can also apply for full-time funding while completing your work term, which will help with living costs.
Each semester of studies or work term requires a new OSAP application. This is because your costs and earnings will change semester to semester.
If you’re completing academic studies in the fall semester, you would choose as your program:
- GENFALL1 (1st years)
- GENFALL2 (2nd years)
- GENFALL3 (3rd years)
- GENFALL4 (4th years)
If you’re studying in the winter semester, it would be the same but GENWINTER (1st years), etc.
For work-term semesters please select a specific work-term option. For example, a first-year student would select CWT1 and choose from three options:
- CWT1F (fall)
- CWT1W (winter)
- CWT1S (summer)
The same format applies for 2nd, 3rd and 4th year students.
