Arts Co-op and Science Co-op

The application deadline is Monday of the first week of classes in a student's second year. (Monday, September 10, 2018)

We have begun accepting applications for fall 2018 admission to Arts Co-op and Science Co-op; you may follow the steps for applying online.

(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 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 is Friday, September 14.)
  • 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 the fall term in 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.
  • Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a four-year degree program; for this reason, co-op is available only to students pursuing their first undergraduate program, not to students pursuing a second undergraduate degree.
  • Candidates from Arts and Science who have been interviewed learn whether they are being offered admission to the Co-op Option on an anticipated date of Friday, September 21. The deadline for accepting the offer of admission is an anticipated date of Monday, September 24, 2018.

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.
