Securing a Co-op Placement
Due to competitive job market for co-op students, all students are required to be active participants in their job searching. Our college cannot guarantee co-op positions for every student. Job placements depend on students’ experience and availability. The co-op term could be unpaid. Students will also be expected to find their own placements. Any student who finds his or her own job placement must get approval from student work placement advisor before accepting the position. Completing either a co-op work term or Applied Project – due to a low GPA (less than 2.5) – is mandatory for graduation.
Students need pay co-op fees to get assistance from co-op advisors including co-op preparation workshops, Canadian labour market orientations, interviews practice and the opportunity to apply co-op positions through our college. students are responsible for all personal costs, relocation costs, transportation arrangements to employment interviews or etc.
