AU Student Applications
If you are applying to Dalhousie Engineering as an engineering student from an Associated University (AU), you will need to take a few extra steps to apply to the co-op program after you have applied to Dalhousie for the fall term.
To qualify for co-op, you must have your diploma in Engineering and a minimum GPA of 2.3 (C+). Even if you're not sure about joining co-op now, you must complete the Co-op Orientation Course to keep your options open.
You will receive an email from Dalhousie University inviting you to apply for the co-op orientation course. We will have submitted your name to Dal's Registrar's office, so when you apply as a visitor you will be admitted.
How to apply:
- Visit dal.ca/applynow to get started. Select Start your application under Ready to apply?
- At the bottom of the page, select First time user account creation to create a login ID and PIN.
- Complete the Bachelor of Engineering Application:

- Admission type: select Visiting Student
- Planned Course of Study: select Visiting Student (*please note that you do not need to obtain a letter of permission) and indicate ENGI 8890 as your intended area of study.
