Enrolment is limited to ensure that students receive a high level of assistance from our team, as well as quality work terms. Admission to the program is based on several factors including:
For students entering co-op directly from high school, or transferring from other universities (including Mississauga and downtown campuses of U of T), you can review application policies and procedures at our Admissions & Student Recruitment website.
Applicants already enrolled in or having completed a university program will be considered for admission with advanced standing credit where applicable.
Students from outside Ontario will be assessed individually. Applications from visa students are accepted; however, students should be aware that some government offices and private companies will hire only Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
Given that admission is competitive, we will automatically consider you for alternate choices at U of T Scarborough (for regular computer and mathematical, humanities, life sciences, physical and environmental sciences, or social sciences programs) should your application for co-op not be approved.
Questions about admissions and scholarships for external candidates:
For consideration to begin the program in June, please apply by April 13.
For consideration to begin the program in September, please apply by July 30.
For admission, the minimum cumulative grade point average (cGPA) requirement varies by program but is never less than 2.5. Check the calendar for program-specific requirements. You will also need the required courses listed for your program in the calendar to be considered.
Please be aware that a cGPA of 2.5 must be maintained to remain in the co-op program.
Students who will have ten or more credits by September are not eligible for admission. If you will have 8 to 9.5 credits, please contact the Co-op Office to discuss your options.
If you’re applying to the April Subject POSt request period, you must be available to complete COPB50, Foundations For Success In Arts & Science Co-op, in the summer term (starting in late May or early June).
