Admission requirements
  • Be registered full-time in the Honours Bachelor of Commerce (Option in Management) program
  • Have a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 6 in courses taken at the University of Ottawa
  • Have completed all your first-year course requirements, and be registered in your mandatory second-year fall and winter courses according to the program’s course sequence

Students who do not follow the course sequence due to equivalencies granted at the time of admission must communicate with the Undergraduate Office of the Telfer School as soon as possible, and no later than the end of their first study term, to discuss their eligibility with an Academic Advisor.

CO-OP programs have limited enrolment. Meeting the admission criteria does not guarantee you a place. Admission is based on your CGPA. We admit those with the highest CGPA first.

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.
