Winter Break

It’s December and Ottawa has welcomed the first snow of the season. The campus looks beautiful and we’re looking forward to an upcoming holiday break. We hope you and your students will enjoy some well deserved rest as well. Please note Carleton will be closed from December 24 until January 4 and we’ll be back on January 5.

Event - Ask Us Anything!

Please invite your students to our live chat event: Ask Us Anything – Admissions and How to Apply, on Tuesday, December 14 from 07:00 to 10:00 ET (See the time in your location). Students are invited to watch a short, on-demand video tailored to their specific school system, and then join the live chat to ask questions. No registration required. Videos cover: American High School, A Levels, Chinese High School, Indian High School, International Baccalaureate, French Baccalaureate, Turkish High School, WAEC and more! Please share with your students – thank you!

Time to Apply!

We encourage students to apply as soon as possible as offers of admission are made on a rolling basis – as soon as we have mid-year grades for students, we are able to extend conditional offers of admission. The main application deadline for fall admission (September 2022 entry) is April 1. Please see a list of programs with earlier deadlines. Students should visit our How To Apply page for detailed information and support.

Documents for Current Applicants

Do you have students who’ve applied to Carleton? Students are able to upload copies of their school transcripts directly to their applications. We also accept electronic documents via Parchment and other secure digital channels. Have questions or need assistance sending documents to us? We’re happy to help. Please email

Scholarships and Awards

We’re pleased to announce that Carleton is once again offering international top-up awards for international students – an International Award of Excellence ($5,000 CAD) for students that qualify for Entrance Awards and an International Award of Merit ($3,500) for students slightly under the cut-off for an Entrance Award. These are in addition to Carleton’s merit-based Entrance Awards (no application required), and Prestige Awards (deadline March 1).
