Admission Decisions

When the application is complete and we receive all the required documents, the status of your application on Carleton Central will turn to “Preliminary Review Required,” which indicates that your application is ready to be reviewed. The review process can take about eight weeks, starting after the application deadline (March 1st). Once a decision is made, your status will be updated, and you will be notified. 

If you are admitted to the DSAAI program, you will be notified when you receive an offer of admission.
