GRADUATE LEVEL CO-OP
All Computing Science graduate students are eligible to apply and participate in up to 3 Co-op work terms. Depending on which program you are enrolled in, you may be eligible to receive academic credit. Interested students and employers, please contact the Graduate Co-op Coordinator or the Big Data Co-op Coordinator.
Graduate Co-op Approval Forms and Guidelines are available by contacting the Co-op Coordinator.
SPECIAL NOTE : All Graduate ( Masters and PhD) students must contact the FAS Grad Co-op Coordinator, Afshan Basaria at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to applying for Grad Co-op.
What is the process to participate in the co-op program?
- Please apply 2 semesters before your intended work term. New graduate students should apply in their first semester.
- The subsequent semesters should alternate academic semesters with Co-op work terms.
- Graduate students may join Co-op at any point of their studies although students must finish their program on an academic semester.
I did Co-op as an undergraduate student. Do i have to pay the application fee again?
Yes. Since the student is now in a different program, they have to pay the same fee as other students in that program
Can a Co-op student be a TA and work in a Co-op term at the same time?
No. Since funding can be limited, students are unable to access both of these options in the same semester, even if the co-op term is on campus.
Are PhD students permitted to do multiple Co-op terms?
Yes, up to three co-op terms, as long as they obtain approval from their faculty supervisor.
Can I do a co-op term in the same semester that I am scheduled to defend my thesis?
No. Student must complete their program on an academic semester and commit their full attention to defending their thesis in their last semester.
If I am a thesis or PhD student, do I need to pay my term fee along with my co-op fee?
No. When you secure a co-op position, you only need to pay the co-op tuition fee.
What grade will I receive for the Co-op course?
Students will receive an "S" for Satisfactory or a "U" for Unsatisfactory. In cases where the student's work report doesn't meet the required standards, they may be given an extension to complete it.
