Studying Students

Who are "Studying Students"?
If you’ve been accepted into SFU Business Co-op, are registered in classes but not applying to co-op jobs, you are considered a “Studying Student”. You may have just come back from a work term or postponed starting applying to co-op jobs after completing your pre-requisite semester. You are still in the co-op program but are just not seeking or working right now.

If you are a "Studying Student", what should you do?
Make sure that you are checking in at the beginning of each semester to find out when the Seeking Student deadline is under Important Dates. Directions on completing your Seeking Student information, including important links, can be found under our Seeking Student section on the website. Information in both of these sections will be updated at the end of each semester in addition to reminder emails being sent to you.
