Work term reports guidelines

You must submit your work term report through the CO-OP Navigator. 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.

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