Direct entry to co-op and admission requirements

If you want to gain valuable work experience while pursuing your undergraduate degree, Ontario Tech University offers direct entry to co-op from high school in a wide range of programs that you can now apply to on your OUAC application. 

Serving as the cornerstone of experiential learning at Ontario Tech, co-op enables students to gain up to 20 months of work experience and build an impressive résumé before they graduate that will set them apart from their peers.

Need general admission requirements here and then direct for program specific requirements

You are required to complete six 4 U/M courses including prerequisite courses for admissions consideration. The minimum admission average required to be considered for co-operative education programs is normally 80%. Exact cut-offs are determined by the quantity and quality of the applicant pool as well as space available in each program. If you are not admitted to co-op, you will be automatically considered for the regular program (non-co-op).
