Work term reports guidelines

Important note

Starting from the Winter 2016 work term, you must submit your work term report through the CO-OP Navigator. You no longer need to print out your report and your evaluations and submit them to the CO-OP Office in person: you will now be able to do everything online.

The “Work Term Report” link can be found next to your work term, under the “My Evaluations” tab. The system will allow you to change or submit your report right up until the deadline for submission, and professors will be able to submit their comments and attach a corrected copy of your report online as well.

Requirements for 2015-2016

You must include a cover letter or letter of transmittal along with your CO-OP work-term report in one PDF file.
