Co-op Fees

The university charges fees to recover a portion of the overall costs of maintaining Laurier's co-operative education programs and promoting the programs to employers. 

Once you confirm your admission to co-op, we register you as a co-op student and you start paying co-op fees. All co-op students at Laurier pay at least two co-op fees before their first work term.

The co-op fee is not an employment fee, and you must pay the fee even if you fail to secure a co-op job. 

You pay the fee online through Service Laurier; for more information, visit Tuition and Fees.

Each May, the university reviews the fees. When the university increases the fee, the new fee first appears in your bill for the fall term. 

  • Please pay each fee through Service Laurier by the due date listed on your invoice.
  • After the due date, the university will charge you an interest penalty of 1.25% on your outstanding balance. 
  • Fees are subject to approval by the Board of Governors and may change without notice.
  • The university reviews the co-op fees annually and begins applying the new fees each fall.

Before withdrawing from co-op, see the Refunds and Fee Appeals section to learn whether you are eligible for any refund.
