Please follow the link to the fee schedule for your program.
All co-op students pay an administrative fee in addition to regular tuition. This fee helps the University to recover a portion of the cost of maintaining and promoting the co-op programs. Administrative costs include salaries, travel expenses, telephone charges and the printing and mailing of résumés and promotional materials. Laurier does not receive any government assistance to operate co-op.
On average, Arts Co-op and Science Co-op students receive lower salaries and work fewer weeks each term than SBE Co-op students. They complete fewer work terms than students in other undergraduate co-op programs and are expected to participate to a greater extent in the job search process. For these reasons, they are charged lower fees.
The co-op fee is not an employment fee, and is payable whether or not you obtain an approved work term position. For the Waterloo campus, fees are payable at Laurier’s Business Office, which is located at 202 Regina Street. For the Brantford campus, fees are payable at Brantford’s Service Laurier Office, which is located in Grand River Hall.
Each May, the university reviews the fees. When the university increases the fee, the increase first appears in your bill for the fall term. Information about co-op fees for the current academic year can be found in the documents below.
