Students on a Work Term

Some employers may need to delay your start date or shorten the work term due to COVID-19. To address this we are working closely with employers and students to be as flexible as possible. Some of the initiatives we have put in place include:

• Allowing for a delayed start date so that placements are not cancelled
• Approving a minimum eight-week work term, if necessary, that will still count for academic credit pending all assignments and a final evaluation have been completed
• Allowing students the opportunity to re-sequence where possible so that they resume classes and enter a future job competition.
