Arts Co-op and Science Co-op

We have begun accepting applications to co-op for 2014 admission. The application deadline is Monday of the second week of classes in a student’s second year. In 2014, the deadline will be September 15. After reading the information below you may follow this link to apply online.

We will accept applications from students who will be enrolled full-time in their second year of an honours Arts or Science program at the Waterloo campus in fall 2014.

(If you are in Business or Economics, please follow this link for instructions on applying to Business or Economics Co-op.)

  • Applicants to Arts Co-op and Science Co-op need an overall GPA of at least 7.0 in first year, or a GPA of at least 7.0 in their honours discipline courses and at least 6.5 overall, to be granted an admission interview.
  • Applicants who meet the grade requirements for 2014 will be invited to schedule and attend an admission interview.
     
  • We begin interviewing candidates in early September. (The deadline for eligible students to schedule interviews for admission to Arts Co-op or Science Co-op was Tuesday, September 17, 2013; we will set the 2014 deadline by July.)
     
  • When making admission decisions, co-op co-ordinators consider applicants’ first-year marks, recent work experience, recent volunteer and extracurricular activities, and performance in an interview.  See the introductory statement for more information about evaluation criteria for applicants to Arts Co-op and Science Co-op.
     
  • Enrolment is limited; there are always many more applicants interviewed than there are spaces for co-op students.
     
  • The only entry point for co-op is at the beginning of second year. Students who are removed from their academic program are not eligible to continue in co-op, even if they are later reinstated into that program.
  • Candidates from Arts and Science who have been interviewed will learn on Friday, September 19, 2014 whether they are being offered admission to the Co-op Option. The deadline for accepting the offer of admission is Monday, September 22, 2014.

International students:

Students on study permits may apply to and be admitted into co-op programs at Laurier. Please note, however, that we may limit the number of spaces available to international students.
