Admission requirements are based on the Ontario High School System. Prospective students can view the admission requirements through the Admissions website at admissions.carleton.ca. The overall average required for admission is determined each year on a program-by-program basis. Holding the minimum admission requirements only establishes eligibility for consideration; higher averages are required for admission to programs for which the demand for places by qualified applicants exceeds the number of places available. All programs have limited enrolment and admission is not guaranteed. Some programs may also require specific course prerequisites and prerequisite averages and/or supplementary admission portfolios. Consult admissions.carleton.ca for further details.
Note: If a course is listed as recommended, it is not mandatory for admission. Students who do not follow the recommendations will not be disadvantaged in the admission process.
- B.P.A.P.M. (Honours)
The Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent including a minimum of six 4U or M courses.
Applications for admission with advanced standing to the program will be assessed on their merits. Normally, offers are made to students with an overall CGPA of 9.00 (B+) or higher. Students must also present at least one of the following: ECON 1001, ECON 1002, or a second-year Political Science course with a minimum grade of B.
Advanced standing will be granted only for those courses deemed appropriate to the program. Students will not receive credit for courses graded below C-.
Direct Admission to the first year of the Co-op Option
