Graduation: You’re almost there

Graduation is the culmination of your academic achievement and success.  At Carleton University, we are proud of all of our graduands, past and present.  If you have met your program requirements, or you are finishing up the final requirements for your degree, you should be congratulated on this important milestone.

In order to ensure that everything goes as planned between now and convocation, and that nothing hinders your plans to graduate, please make sure to review the information on this website very closely and carefully.  If you have any questions about any of the information provided on this site, please contact the Registrar’s Office.

Graduation checklist

The last thing you want is for something to go wrong before graduation.  In order to avoid any last minute barriers that might result in a delay to your expected graduation, or in your application being declined, please read through the following “checklist” topics carefully.

Grad Application Results

You will be notified by email to your Carleton email account of the outcome of your application after the Senate meeting to award degrees takes place.  The result will also be posted to your online graduation application.

If your application is unsuccessful (insufficient credits, low CGPA, etc.) then the Registrar’s Office will not recommend you as a candidate for graduation.  This has no impact on your ability to apply for graduation in the future.  If you wish to be considered for graduation at a later date, you must apply again.  If your application is unsuccessful, you will be notified by email.

Please note the dates for submission of a graduation application:

  • Spring (June) from December 1 – March 1
  • Fall (November) from May 1 – September 1
  • Winter (February) from September 1 – December 1
