Common Student Inquiries
Why am I being charged twice?
You might notice 2 different Co-op fees on your account. If you’re registered in courses during the summer, one of the fees will automatically be reversed during the beginning of May. If you aren’t registered in courses for the summer, both fees will be reversed.
My co-op fees are paid in full but I’m still seeing fees
I’m not taking courses
If you notice any incorrect fees on your student account that fall outside of this situation—or if you still notice an issue with your account by the end of May, please connect with the Co-op team by emailing email@example.com.
If you withdraw during the session from all of the courses that you're registered in, the refund schedule for incidental fees will apply to your Co-op fees.
If a you leave the program for any reason, co-op fees paid in earlier sessions are not refundable.
If you register for courses and subsequently secure a work term, we will request that your course fees be refunded if the request falls within a reasonable amount of time.

OSAP Eligibility for Co-op Students
During study terms
You’re eligible for OSAP during semesters that you’re registered as a full-time student and are attending classes.
During work terms
When you’re planning to go on a work term, you must apply for the correct number of weeks of funding. This is an important step; you’ll want to avoid overpayment caused by receiving funding during an incorrect study period.
Maintaining interest-free status while on work term
OSAP is interest-free as long as you are a full-time student, which is considered to be a 60% course load (or 40% course load for students with a permanent disability). This means that as long as someone is enrolled full time, their loan won’t go into repayment mode and their interest won’t begin to accumulate.
As a co-op student, U of T considers you to be in full-time attendance while out on your work term; therefore, you’re entitled to continue interest-free. But you have to let the lender, the National Student Loans Service, know that you’re still a student.
To do this, simply complete a Continuation of Interest-Free Status (or CFIS) form by the deadline.
