How to Apply

Q.  What happens when you hit the button "Apply Now" ?

A: You will be taken to our university's Graduate Admissions page for applying online.  There is lots of general information there, including step-by-step details of the process for applying and being accepted. After you have looked this over, hit the red button "Request Application Account" on the upper right of that page.

Before applying, please ensure that you meet our minimum admission requirements. Domestic applicants require a minimum B+ average in your previous physics degree. You must have an undergraduate degree in Physics or equivalent to be eligible for admission. International applicants must also provide evidence of English language proficiency click here for more information.

We receive many enquiries to review resumes and transcripts on an ad hoc basis.  It is very difficult to respond to all these requests due to the volume received.  Applicants are invited to do a self-assessment to make sure they meet the minimum admission qualifications before applying.

Thank you for your interest in a Carleton graduate degree in Physics!

Q. Can I apply after the deadline?

A: We continue to accept applications even past the posted deadline. If you have a question, please contact grad-supervisor[at]
