Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

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).
