UTM Students

University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) eligibility for PEY Co-op

UTM undergraduate students in any of the following programs may be eligible to participate in PEY Co-op:

  • Information Security Specialist
  • Bioinformatics Specialist
  • Computer Science Specialist, Major, or Minor

Students must meet and maintain the PEY Co-op eligibility requirements throughout the program:

  • Complete CSC207H5 / CSC207H1 / CSCB07H3 in either the fall or winter sessions of their second year.
  • Remain enrolled in a full-time course load for the semester before and after each work term in the PEY Co-op program.
    • Students with part-time status may be considered for the program if they have received accommodation from the University. Students with PEY Co-op accommodation needs should contact the ECC office.
  • Remain in good academic standing throughout the duration of the program and associated work terms.
  • Remain in good financial standing at the University of Toronto.
  • Not currently part of another co-op program at the University of Toronto.

While the ECC aims to help students prepare themselves for the job market, selection of students for work terms is done by employers and the ECC cannot guarantee a placement. Students who are not selected for a work term are not required to pay the fees for that instalment.

International students

Both domestic and international students are eligible to participate. All international students require a valid work permit to participate in a work term. Currently, only international students at UTM who are enrolled in an Information Security Specialist or Computer Science Specialist or Computer Science Major program meet this requirement.

The UTM International Education Centre can provide guidance and support for those who require it. Students are encouraged to apply for any required work permit as soon as possible after being admitted to PEY Co-op.
