Work Term Requirements

Before the onset of the first work term, the student should have a minimum first-year standing with a minimum 2.5 GPA. In addition, the following requirements must be met:

Successful completion of the work term

  • Successful employer evaluation and Co-op Coordinator assessment. During the work term, the Co-op Coordinator will conduct a monitor visit to discus the student’s progress with both the supervisor and the student

  • Completion of monthly reports, due by the 5th of the following month, i.e. May’s report is due June 5th. This should be a 2-5 page report including a log of hours and highlighting, weekly, activities and skills/knowledge learned. This report may be in point form and can be mailed, faxed, or sent via e-mail to your Co-op Coordinator.

  • Completion of a final work report. This will differ slightly for each work experience and will be evaluated by the Co-op Coordinator and/or a faculty member from the student’s discipline. Guidelines for this report are available below. This report will either be a work report emphasizing learning (WT1) or a short technical report (WT1, 2, 3) of 8-10 pages on an area of the work completed. Samples of these reports can be found on our Online Resources page.
