Fees and funding
The co-op program fee
All co-op students pay a tuition fee for the co-op program. This fee supports the operational costs of the co-op program and helps maintain our online job posting system.
It's free to join the co-op program and attend preparation sessions—you'll only pay your fee once you've secured a co-op job. Your fee is due at the end of the first month of each co-op work term.
- Current co-op tuition fees are listed on the Co-op and Work Experience Programs homepage.
FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS
Difference between the graduate co-op fee and the grad installment fee
The graduate co-op program tuition fee is different than the grad installment fee. If you're a grad student and you register for a co-op work term, you'll pay the (1) graduate co-op program tuition fee and (2) the graduate ancillary fees during that term.
If you register for a course (e.g. Thesis 596 or 598) and a co-op work term in the same term, you'll pay (1) the graduate co-op program tuition fee, (2) the graduate ancillary fees and (3) the graduate installment fee.
