In-course Admission

In-course admission is only available for undergraduate degree co-op programs.  Admission to co-op for current University of Guelph students is based on the following criteria:

  • You are in first year of one of the programs that offers co-op and will not have completed more than 3.0 credits if applying for a program with a Fall application deadline or will not have completed more than 6.0 credits if applying for a program with a Winter application deadline at the time of admission.

  • You have a minimum cumulative average of 70% (meeting the minimum cumulative average requirement does not guarantee your admittance to co-op).
  • You are taking a full-time course load each semester. 

  • You agree to the schedule of studies for your proposed co-op program as outlined in the Undergraduate Calendar, or as approved by your Program Counsellor and the Experiential Learning Hub. 

  • There is currently space in the co-op program to which you're applying.

  • If applying to the Criminal Justice & Public Policy or Justice and Legal Studies co-op program, you must currently be in the regular stream of the program.

Continuation requirements for co-op students include:

  • Taking a full-time course load each semester (a minimum of 2.0 credits unless you have an approved accommodation plan due to a disability-related reason or an approved accommodation due to medical, psychological, compassionate reasons).
  • Following the academic schedule as specified in the Undergraduate Calendar

In the Undergraduate Calendar, the degree program followed by :C (a colon and the letter C) denotes co-op; for example, MEF:C is co-op.
