|The Waterloo Catholic District School Board offers the University Cooperative Education Program (UCEP) in partnership with St. Jerome’s University, University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University.
This program provides students who have achieved high academic success to experience university life before leaving secondary school. In this program, students can earn a university credit, one or two Grade 12 secondary school credits (taught by secondary school teachers at the university), and two Co-op credits.
Why participate in UCEP?
UCEP enables students to:
Students are responsible for their own transportation to the university campus, tuition and text book costs.
UCEP students are considered part-time university students and therefore have all of the same privileges and responsibilities. To be successful in this program, students need to be independent and self-motivated.
