For students in the International Development Studies Co-op Program, co-op fees are in addition to tuition and incidental fees. Co-op fees relate to costs associated with the administration of work terms and are calculated in accordance with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, and University of Toronto policies. The costs recovered through the fees are:
The co-op fee schedule ensures that the total amount of co-op fees payable is fairly assessed regardless of the year of entry, and that students will generally not be assessed co-op fees in the final year of their program, after their work terms have been completed.
The payment of co-op fees is spread over a number of sessions (Fall, Winter, Summer). The number of sessions and the amount of fees depend on the year of entry to the program. The total Co-op fee amount is the same whether students are admitted in year 1 or year 2.
For students admitted to the Co-op Program in Year 1, the co-op fees are payable in each of the first eight sessions (Fall, Winter, or Summer) in which the student either enrolls in any number of academic courses or is on a work term, after which no further co-op fees will be payable.
For students admitted to the Co-op Program in Year 2, the co-op fees are levied at a somewhat higher level, but are payable in each of the first six sessions (Fall, Winter, Summer) in which the student either enrolls in any number of academic courses or is on a work term, after which no further co-op fees will be payable.
As in the case of tuition fees, co-op fees are posted to a student’s account. The co-op fees for the Fall and Winter sessions will be posted in the Fall and co-op fees for the summer session will be posted in April. Students must make a minimum payment to register, then may pay the balance of their account in monthly installments. Accounts should be paid in full by the end of the Winter session; in the event of an outstanding balance at the end of the session, students will not be permitted further registration, nor have transcripts issued. For the summer session, the co-op fees are payable in full at registration. For more details on payment of your account, see the Student Account Information Booklet provided with your registration material.
Please note that all co-op students are charged co-op fees at the beginning of each registration period. If students do not register in courses or are not on a work term, the fees are reversed at the end of the course enrollment period in mid-May, mid-September and mid-January.
If a student withdraws during the session from all of the courses in which he/she is registered, the refund schedule for incidental fees will apply to the Co-op fees. If a student leaves the program for any reason, co-op fees paid in earlier sessions are not refundable. If a student registers for courses and subsequently secures a work term, the co-op office will request that the student’s course fees be refunded if the request falls within a reasonable amount of time.
