March 1 Early Deadline Reminder

Students are required to submit additional admission material for these programs, such as portfolios or auditions along with their application. See more information

Book a 1:1 Meeting

Students are invited to book individual meetings with our International Admissions Officers – to discuss their application, find out what’s next, or ask any questions! We are happy to meet students interested in Carleton and want to support and help at every stage of the admissions process.

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

Alternative Pathway to a Business Degree

Carleton’s Sprott School of Business is offering an alternative admissions pathway to the Bachelor of Commerce (Business) or the Bachelor of International Business for students who may not meet the math requirements, but who are still academically strong, and can demonstrate skills in leadership and creativity through a personal statement. See requirements and get details

Prestige Scholarships Deadline

A friendly reminder to your students, that the deadline to apply for Prestige Scholarships is March 1. These are Carleton’s highest awards for students presenting an admission average of 90 per cent or more, along with meaningful community involvement and extracurricular activities. An application is required.

Resources for International School Counsellors

We have put together resources and information for international school counsellors – including how to book classroom visits, get brochures, take tours and more! We also have new on-demand videos about applying from specific school systems (A Levels; American, Chinese and Indian High School; CAPE, IB, WAEC and more!).
