Academic Plan Sequencing by Program

The co-op program integrates academic semesters with three four-month co-op terms. Students normally complete the first two years of their degree before starting co-op.* For the remainder of their program, students alternate co-op terms and academic semesters. The following schedules depict a typical sequence for each of our co-op programs.

*Note: Tourism and Hospitality students begin co-op after one full academic year of their degree.
