QUESTION:
Has anyone here been kicked out of co-op? What was the process like?

8 comments

  1. i was kicked out of co-op at the end of first term because i failed half my courses and didn't do well in the other half.
    i basically just had to make sure that my grades were good enough in second term so i could be reinstated.
    i then filled out the form to be reinstated to co-op, and waited to see if my grades were deemed good enough to be considered to do so. lucky for me, they were and i was reinstated the following term.

    not sure what kind of process you were looking for, but this was my experience.
    hope it helps :)

    1. and this fuckin failure is going to have an easier time getting a job than me because of co-op (which I was never in).

      Wish somebody told me marks don't count for shit.

    2. @1, What faculty/program are you in? And who determines whether your grades are good enough? Your program advisor? department chair?

  4. when you say kicked out, it sounds harsh, like if I were to literally kick you out of my party

  5. OP, I'm kinda wondering about the same thing. I'm currently finding a job for my third co-op term but i just found out that I have to meet the minimum requirement for my program and faculty in order to stay in the co-op stream. For me, it's 70% for major average and 65% overall. I'm so scared because i really love co-op, my parents and friends feel really good about Waterloo's co-op and are very proud of me. But my grades are so shitty this term.my 1A grades are so much higher..

    1. I was in a similiar situation, I killed 2A and I mean murdered it, and no employer bats an eye at me.

      If you did good on 1A, you can do it again! good luck
