The Awards Office will assess continuing students for the renewal of entrance scholarships, general in-course scholarships, and the Deans’ Honour List (DHL) after we receive final grades for the Fall/Winter session. For most undergraduate students, this assessment will take place in June. Assessment will be done in accordance with the rules and regulations concerning the awarding of Carleton University undergraduate scholarships.
The following general conditions must be met. Students must:
- Be enrolled in an undergraduate degree program;
- Have completed a minimum of four (4.0) credits over the Fall 2022 and Winter 2023 terms;
- Have achieved an annual Grade Point Average of 10.0 or better. The annual GPA is calculated using all earned grades (grade points of all Carleton credits/courses) taken over the last 12 months (i.e. Summer 2022, Fall 2022, and Winter 2023 terms); and
- Have not earned a grade of F, UNS or NR. A final grade of F, UNS, or NR (in any credit or non-credit course for the period being considered) will result in being ineligible to renew an entrance scholarship or to be considered for an in-course scholarship or the Deans’ Honour List.
For courses with a CR notation, the original/earned grade still forms part of your student record and will be used as part of various academic considerations such calculating your annual GPA for scholarship/award assessment.
Satisfactory (SAT) grade designation for Winter 2023:
On Friday, April 14, 2023, the Carleton University Senate passed a compassionate grading option for undergraduate students in the Winter 2023 term. For scholarship assessment this means:
- Final earned/original grades converted to SAT will be used to meet the minimum course load requirement (complete at least 4.0 credits over the Fall and Winter terms).
- Final earned/original grades converted to SAT will not be used in the calculation of the annual GPA (Summer 2022, Fall 2022, Winter 2023).
- A final grade of F, UNS, or NR (in any credit or non-credit course for the period being considered) will result in being ineligible to renew an entrance scholarship or to be considered for an in-course scholarship or the Deans’ Honour List.
