In accordance with our policies and our dates and deadlines, students at Carleton University are responsible for ensuring that their fees are paid in full by our deadlines. Once the deadline passes, late charges and interest charges will be applied to all unpaid accounts. Students who have not paid their fees by the deadline may be deregistered from their courses.

In addition, any outstanding fees (including late and interest charges) for a given term must be paid by the final payment deadline for that term, or financial holds will apply.

Types of Financial Holds:

  • Marks/Transcripts/Official Documentation holds are applied on all accounts with overdue fees, and prevent access to receive your final grades, transcripts and other official documents.
  • Registration holds are applied on accounts with $100.00 or more in overdue fees, and in addition to the Marks/Transcripts/Official Documentation hold, will prevent access to course registration.
  • Diploma Holds are applied on accounts with $100.00 or more in overdue fees, and prevent access to receive your diploma, transcripts and/or letters and confirmations certifying graduation.

All Holds remain in effect until the University receives payment. Once payment is received, the relevant holds will be expired automatically.
