Transcripts and Academic Documents

Submission of Transcripts and Academic Documents

In most cases we ask that students upload their documents through our application portal – Carleton360.  You can check what documents are needed and the status of your application at any time using Carleton360. All you need is your MC1 (MyCarletonOne) username and you are ready to go.

Occasionally we may ask that an official physical copy of a document be sent directly to our office. In those cases, documents can be mailed to:

Admissions Services
Carleton University
315 Pigiarvik
1125 Colonel By Drive
Ottawa, ON K1S 5B6, Canada

If you are submitting documents in a language other than English, you must submit a certified English translation or notarized copy (of the translation) of each original transcript and/or document. The information on the English translation must match exactly the information on the original transcript and/or document. For example, grades must appear in the same order on the original transcript and the translation.

If you have questions about document submission, please email us at

Please note: Documents submitted in support of an application for admission become the property of the University. Carleton University retains electronic student files for all students admitted for the 2014 summer term and beyond. Original documents that have been digitized for inclusion in the student’s file are destroyed in compliance with the University’s privacy policies.  In some cases, original documents may be returned to the applicant. Contact Admissions Services for more information.

Carleton University reserves the right to verify any documentation that you provide for accuracy. Verification may include contacting the institution that issued the document, contacting the Ministry of Education in the country concerned, contacting the appropriate Embassy or Consulate, or consulting a certified government translator.
