The team at UBC Science Co-op is here to help! We want all our students to succeed in school terms, work terms and beyond. Contact the UBC Science Co-op office for support on placements, deadlines, and work term reports.
Academic Questions? Contact Your ES Advisors.
UBC has Enrollment Services Advisors (ES Advisors) who are able to help all UBC students with academic and financial issues and questions. ESAs should be your first point of contact for help with items such as paying tuition, student loans, scholarships and changing programs. Contact your ESA and learn more about how they can help.
You can find your Enrollment Services Advisor's contact information on the Student Service Centre (SSC) under Personal Info and UBC Contacts. Your ESA can help you in person, by phone, or email.
The workshop fee is a one-time fee paid upon admission to Co-op. All new students have to pay the fee online by credit or debit card prior to attending the workshop. For the latest fee information, please visit UBC Calendar. If you have questions about the workshop fee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
No, you do not need to enroll in a Co-op course yourself. The Co-op office will enroll students in Co-op courses. Before registering for courses, you will have to pay a $100 registration deposit, which will be applied toward your tuition. The deposit will appear on the Pay Fees screen through the Student Service Centre (SSC) once your registration date has been released. Please note that if you have enough tuition credits in your account, a registration deposit might not be required. Co-op course fee is applied to your UBC account upon registration. Please pay your fees to UBC, the same as your other tuition fees. For current fee information, please visit the UBC Calendar. If you have questions about Co-op registration, please email email@example.com.
No, Co-op course credits cannot be used in lieu of or to complement academic course credits required by the specialization. Each successfully completed Co-op course will be assigned credits and will be recorded on the transcript. To receive a Co-op designation on graduation, you must have completed the required number of work terms in addition to the regular academic requirements of the specialization.
Send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org with the purpose of the letter (i.e. student permit, scholarship, housing) and an electronic copy will be prepared and sent to you in 3 business days.
If you're enrolled in the plan, you're covered for up to 120 days per trip. Note: You must have Canadian provincial health care coverage or equivalent coverage to make travel claims. More details can be found on the UBC I Have a Plan site.
You are able to opt in/out of housing as it makes sense for your Co-op placement.

A support document from the Co-op office might be required by the Student Residence. Please email email@example.com to request a letter.
