Co-op Courses

How do I enroll in a co-op course?

There are 3 types of Arts & Science Co-op courses:
 
  1. Preparation (COPB50 and COPB51)
  2. Seeking (COPB52, COPB53, COPC98, COPC99)
  3. On Work Term (course code varies depending on program - COPC01, COPC03. COPC05, COPC13, COPC14, COPC20, COPC30, COPC40)
 
For Fall 2021/Winter 2022 courses, registration for Preparation courses will be changing. This change brings added flexibility for co-op students when planning their academics and will allow them to decide when they would like to complete these courses prior to their first job search semester.
 
Seeking and On Work Term course enrollment will remain the same and the co-op office will continue to enroll students into the appropriate courses based on work term sequence and program of study.
