Starting in the Fall 2023 work term, students and professors (academic coordinators) must complete and submit an updated CO-OP work term report called a CO-OP Reflective Report via the CO-OP Navigator.
Students must submit their work term report through the CO-OP Navigator as a single PDF file. The Work-term report link appears next to your placement under the My Evaluations tab. The system allows you to submit or edit your submission up until the report deadline. It also allows professors to submit comments and attach a corrected copy of your report.
You must submit your work term report through the CO-OP Navigator. The “ Work Term Report ” link can be found next to your work term, under the “ My Evaluations ” tab. The system will allow you to change or submit your report right up until the deadline for submission, and professors will be able to submit their comments and attach a corrected copy of your report online as well.
You must include a cover letter or letter of transmittal along with your CO-OP work-term report in one PDF file .
For confidential Work-Term Reports, please make sure to submit your cover letter or letter of transmittal, and the evaluation form (Appendix B) completed and signed by your employer through the CO-OP Navigator by the deadline for submission.
When applying for regular admission to the University, you can also apply for direct admission to any CO-OP program except Biomedical Science, Translation and graduate-level programs. The average mark required to be eligible for direct admission into CO-OP is
80% or higher for students admitted in first year.
75% or higher for applicants who have completed at least two years of CEGEP.
To keep your reserved placement in CO-OP, you must obtain a cumulative grade point average of at least 8.0 and meet the admission requirements of your chosen CO-OP program until you are formally admitted into the Program (September 30 or March 1 of your second year of studies, depending on the program). Otherwise, you will lose your reserved spot in CO-OP and have to compete with regular applicants for admission.
If you apply for direct admission and are not granted a placement, don't worry. You can re-apply during your second year at University (see section 2)
2 - Applying once at the University of Ottawa
You can apply for CO-OP after you have registered at the University of Ottawa. Application deadlines and admission requirements vary from program to program, so be sure to check individual program pages online for specific information.
