There are two ways to apply for CO-OP.
When you apply for admission to the University of Ottawa
Submit an application to the CO-OP program of your choice (excluding translation and biomedical sciences programs). In order to be considered, you must have a minimum admission average of:
- 80% if you’re applying directly from high school and are accepted into first year or
- 75% if you’ve completed at least two years of CEGEP.
Once your CO-OP application has been approved, a spot will be reserved for you. However, you must have the minimum average required in order to be officially accepted into the program.
