In May 2015, the StFX University Senate passed the following regarding Co-op students on scholarship.
Scholarship Retention Requirements: To be eligible to retain major and entrance scholarships, students must have been registered in a minimum of 24 credits during the previous academic year (with the exception of co-op students on placement) and have met the 80% average requirements.
Regulations as they apply to students in a StFX Co-op programme: Students enrolled in a co-op programme will not lose their eligibility to retain their scholarship as a result of their co-op placement.
Students enrolled in a co-op program will be eligible to retain their full-year academic scholarship in an academic year during which they are on a co-op placement, so long as they have met the normal eligibility requirements from the previous academic year. To remain eligible in subsequent years, students within a co-op program will need to maintain the appropriate average grade with the grade calculated over a minimum of 12 credits taken during the academic year the student was on a co-op placement. The grade will be calculated over a minimum of 24 credits should the placement be during the spring/summer period. Students in a co-op program will be eligible for scholarship funding for a maximum of four years.
Note: If you received a scholarship from an outside agency, please contact the agency that issued the scholarship regarding questions about co-op education and scholarship requirements.
