Co-op Eligibility

Students for this program are required to achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 2.8 by the beginning of term 3 when eligibility is determined by the co-op advisor.

To be considered eligible the following criteria must be met:

  • Overall GPA of 2.8
  • Passed all required courses to date
  • Registered in current term courses
  • Fees paid in full

In order to be eligible to participate in a full-time co-op work term (CPL-1049) students must have a GPA of 2.8 or greater. Failing to do so will require the students to enroll in CPL-5559 WIL Project at an additional cost of $1,230.00 (includes health fees). The tuition is to cover the costs of faculty supervision and infrastructure usage. 

Securing a Co-op Placement

The job market for co-op is very competitive and students are expected to be active participants in their job searches, this includes demonstrated activity on the myCareer System.

Lambton College cannot guarantee co-op positions for students. Success in finding a co-op involves a number of factors that are not controlled by Lambton College.

Limited assistance is provided to students in finding co-op placements. Students will also be expected to canvass employers to find their own placements. Completing either a co-op work term or Applied Project - due to a low GPA (less than 2.8) - is mandatory for graduation.

Any student who secures his or her own co-op position must verify with the Co-op & Career Advisor assigned to the program that the proposed co-op is appropriate and will be approved before accepting the position.
