To be eligible for the Computer Science (CS) Co-op program, a student must

  • Have successfully completed a minimum of 30.0 credit hours at the time of application.
  • Have successfully completed CS 115.
  • Have achieved a minimum undergraduate grade point average (UGPA) of 70%.

Note: Students who do not register in their first co-op term prior to completing 60.0 credit hours may not have time to complete the required number of co-op work terms necessary to achieve the Co-op designation on their official transcript.

To continue in the CS Co-op program, a student must

  • Maintain a minimum UGPA of 70% throughout their program. If a student’s UGPA drops below 70%, permission of the Dept. Co-op coordinator will be required in order to continue in the Co-op program.
  • Must enroll in at least 9.0 credit hours in fall/winter or at least 3.0 credit hours in spring/summer between work terms.
  • Three Co-op work terms are required to achieve the Co-op designation on the student’s official transcript. Additional two work terms are optional.

Note: A Co-op work term is typically defined as 4-months (one semester). Double work terms may be considered at the discretion of the co-op coordinator.


Application Process

Students who believe they meet the eligibility criteria are encouraged to fill out an application form for the Co-operative Education program. Application forms are available at, and should be submitted to, the University of Regina Career Centre, which is located on the first floor of the Dr. William Riddell Centre. You may also see the Undergraduate Program / Co-op Program / Contact page for further information.

The deadline for applications is the end of the first week of classes of the semester immediately preceding the first work term placement. For example, if a student wants to be placed with a co-op employer (work term) for the Spring/Summer semester (May - August), then he or she must apply no later than the end of the first week of classes in the Winter semester (January - April).
