Co-op fees help to cover the operational costs of the Science Co-op Program including but not limited to administration of the entire recruitment process for Co-op positions, business development in securing new Co-op employers, individual coaching for students, and staff salaries. As well, a portion of these fees go toward providing financial support for some international Co-op experiences, providing networking opportunities for students, and facilitating on-site visits in the workplace. They are payable as follows:
- One time non-refundable Administration and Workshop fee payable upon acceptance into the program to UBC Science Co-op. This fee also covers mandatory pre-employment training workshops. These workshops, prepare you for the job search process, help you transition into the workplace, and are a requirement for all Co-op Programs as defined by the Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Canada (CEWIL Canada).
- Course tuition for each Co-op work term payable to UBC. For each work term, the Co-op Office will register you in a Co-op course
*Please note fees are subject to change as per UBC tuition guidelines.
How to Pay My Fees?
Administration and Workshop Fees
Pay online after you are admitted into the program and before the deadline. Online payment is accepted via credit or debit cards.
Co-op Course Fee
Please pay your $100 registration deposit online through the Student Service Centre (SSC) as soon as you have found a placement so the Co-op office can register you for your Co-op course. When registration in the Co-op course is done, pay your fees to UBC, the same as your other tuition fees.
