Full details can be found under Co-op Programs. The application form can be found on Career Connection or you can follow the steps on our Apply to Co-op page. Students who have not been approved by the Co-op office will not be able to register or waitlist for COOP 1101.

Available COOP 1101 sections can be found on the KPU Timetable. Register for the course the same way you would as your academic courses.

Students are encouraged to register for COOP 1101 on their registration date due to limited seating in each section.

Registration Issues

Seats are available but you went straight to the waitlist:

Each COOP 1101 class has a specific number of seats allocated to some or all of the Co-op programs. If seats are available in that section and you went straight to the waitlist, the seats for your program are currently full. Stay on the waitlist as adjustments can be made up until the 1st week of classes.

Program restriction
  1. You have NOT submitted a Co-op Application form. Apply here.
