For students in the Ted Rogers Co-op program, additional fees are added to their tuition fees. These fees relate to costs associated with the administration of the Co-op programs and are calculated in accordance with the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development and Ryerson University policies.
Co-op fees, in part, cover the costs associated with the administration of the Co-op program which includes pre-employment training, the administration of work-term activity (obtaining job postings, preparation of students for the work terms, monitoring work term activity, debriefing students and employers during the employment process), and the recruitment of Co-op employers.
The total co-op fee for 2019-2020 is $3,500.00. Fees are paid in installments spread over a number of sessions (Fall, Winter) to reduce the burden on you.
Co-op fees are participation fees and are not based on the number of work terms secured, nor when work terms are secured. Students who secure at least 3 Co-op work terms (12 months total) are required to pay the full co-op fees according to their respective fee payment schedule.
Co-op fees and payments are non-refundable and subject to change without notice.
