Applying to the BA (Co-op)

An Investment in the Future

The fee for participating in the BA (Co-op) programme is presently set at $400 per annum. There may be a slight increase to this fee for the 2004-2005 school year. This fee is not tuition; it is a programme fee used to partially offset the costs of administering the programme and providing support and extracurricular training. The fee should be viewed as a career investment since students develop skills and gain experience for a life time.

Applying for Admission to Co-op

Once accepted to the Bachelor of Arts programme, a student may apply to undertake the co-op option. To do so, a student must complete and return the BA Co-operative Education application form. Note: Application deadline has been extended. Applications can be faxed to 506-452-0617. Acceptance to the programme is carried out over two stages. Candidates are assessed on a combination of academic standing, commitment to personal and career development, and volunteer, community, or extracurricular involvement. If accepted through this first screening, the student will enroll in the first-year co-op course, COOP1003: Experiential Learning (Semester 1). If, at the end of the first term, a student wishes to continue taking the co-op option, he or she will complete a second and final application for formal acceptance to the programme. In January of the first year of study, potential co-op students will take 10 hours of job search methods training. Performance and commitment to this training, in conjunction with the second application, will determine if a student is suited to participate in the BA (Co-op) Programme. A final decision on acceptance will be rendered in the first week of February.
