E)   WORK TERM RECORD & GOALS

Your Work Term Record must be updated by the fourth week of your work term – May 31, 2018.  Please access E2O and view your co-op sequence. Click on your current term and select “EDIT WORK TERM RECORD”

Please also email your completed and signed work term goals to the co-op office, pmeng@unb.ca, by May 31.

F)   WORK TERM REPORTS

Work Term Reports are due on Friday, September 7, 2018

G)   STUDENT LOAN

If you have a Federal student loan, please remember to get a Schedule II completed by Financial Services (Jennifer Mazerolle: Jenmaz@unb.ca) and return it to your bank. If you have a private loan, your bank will require a Confirmation Letter from the Registrar (registrar@unb.ca). This has to be done every six months, or you will be expected to start repaying your loan. If your work term extends beyond six months, e-mail or phone Financial Services, and they will complete the schedule and forward it to your bank.

H)   COURSES

Students are NOT permitted to take ANY courses during their first work term. However, if a student achieves a favorable Employer Evaluation for their first work term, they may take one course during a later work term with the approval of their work term supervisor and the Co-op Coordinator (for undergraduate students) and the director of graduate studies (for MCS & MCSC students).

I)   EMAIL/WORK TERM RESPONSIBILITIES

The Co-op Office uses UNB email to contact Co-op Students while on a work term. Your UNB email should be forwarded to your work email provided your employer gives their authorization. If it’s not possible for your UNB emails to be forwarded to work, it is important that you check it regularly. We will contact you throughout the term regarding site visits, deadlines, etc.
