Spring Greetings from Carleton University!

We trust this message finds you well and that your students are starting to look forward to their university adventures in September. We want to invite your students to upcoming events, update you on important dates (including flexible application deadlines), and provide updates for what’s happening in September 2021. Thank you for your ongoing support of our partnership. We look forward to welcoming your students this fall, and to hopefully seeing you in-person again before too much longer as well. If you have any questions, please reach out to Rob Finlayson, robert.finlayson@carleton.ca.

Invite Your Students to Preview Life at Carleton!

International students who have applied to Carleton are invited to join us on Saturday, April 10 for a Live Student Life Preview. They can meet and engage with current international students, and explore what their lives might look like at Carleton through a series of short, interactive live broadcasts. Students can also chat 1:1 with staff to get answers to all their questions. Please share with your students who want to come to Carleton! Late applicants are also welcome.

April 1 - Application Deadline

Although the deadline for international students was April 1 for most programs, please note that we are still accepting new applications for September 2021. This is dependent on availability and subject to change with minimal advance notice, so we encourage students who are still exploring university options to apply as soon as possible to be considered for their first choice program. (See list of programs with firm early deadlines).

Tips for Quick Application Decisions

For faster processing, please upload the required documents to the application directly in our Carleton360 portal. (Watch: How to upload your documents). Once the documents match the requirements, we can proceed with the assessment and get you and the student a quick decision. As a Carleton University partner you can email scanned documents on behalf of your applicants. However, emailed documents are placed in a processing queue and this can add considerable time to the process. At present this queue is greater than three weeks.

A Return to In-Person Learning

We hope to welcome everyone to campus as soon as it’s safe to do so. The safety of our community is our highest priority. The most likely scenario for September is a gradual and safe return to campus, as public health regulations permit. Flexibility for students is a top priority as we plan for classes and support services. Large classes will continue online for fall 2021, but we hope to offer a significant proportion of smaller classes, labs and tutorials in person or in a blended format. We’re working within public health guidelines and will provide more information as the situation continues to evolve.
