Co-Operative Education is a form of experiential learning for which credits are earned that combines classroom theory and learning experiences at a placement (i.e. workplace). Students may enroll in co-op more than once. Students can use up to two Co-op credits to meet compulsory credit requirements for their OSSD (i.e., from group 1, 2, or 3).
