In most cases the work term(s) is a full-time paid position completed between two academic semesters. In programs with limited co-op opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility.

Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional co-op stream regardless of success in securing a work position.
