How to apply

Two easy ways to apply :

1 - Reserved placement

When applying for regular admission to the University, you can also apply for direct admission to any CO-OP program except Biomedical Science, Translation and graduate-level programs. The average mark required to be eligible for direct admission into CO-OP is

  • 80% or higher for students admitted in first year.
  • 75% or higher for applicants who have completed at least two years of CEGEP.

To keep your reserved placement in CO-OP, you must obtain a cumulative grade point average of at least 8.0 and meet the admission requirements of your chosen CO-OP program until you are formally admitted into the Program (September 30 or March 1 of your second year of studies, depending on the program). Otherwise, you will lose your reserved spot in CO-OP and have to compete with regular applicants for admission.

If you apply for direct admission and are not granted a placement, don't worry. You can re-apply during your second year at University (see section 2)


2 - Applying once at the University of Ottawa

You can apply for CO-OP after you have registered at the University of Ottawa. Application deadlines and admission requirements vary from program to program, so be sure to check individual program pages online for specific information.

Steps to follow in order to apply from the University via UoZone:

  • UoZone 
  • From the Applications menu, click on CO-OP Navigator

If you have any questions about your application, please contact our office by phone at 613 562-5741 or by e-mail at coop@uOttawa.ca.

Application Deadline: September 30 of your second year of studies
