Co-op Admission

Admission to the University of Guelph’s Co-operative Education program from high school is primarily processed through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) for degree co-op programs or Ontario Colleges (OCAS) for associate diploma co-op programs. When applying through high school, admission to co-op occurs at the same time you’re accepted into your program. 

If you have already began your studies at Guelph it may not be too late for you to apply through our in-course admission process for degree co-op programs. 

For degree programs, please note that admission to Co-operative Education at the University of Guelph is only considered when a student is in their first year of studies. Students that are in second year or higher and have more than 6.0 credits cannot pursue co-op as they are unable to follow the prescribed schedule listed in the Undergraduate Calendar for their program.
