Graduation Requirements

In addition to the requirements listed below, students must satisfy the University regulations, including the process of Academic Performance Evaluation (see the Academic Regulations of the University section of this Calendar).

Students should consult the College and its Web site when planning their program and selecting courses.

Academic Performance Evaluation

The Bachelor of Humanities degree specifies that all credits are included in the Major CGPA, making this average identical to the Overall CGPA. Students are evaluated on the basis of their Overall CGPA and their Core CGPA.

Students are in Good Standing if the Overall CGPA = 7.00 and the Core CGPA = 7.0.

A student who is not in Good Standing but has Overall CGPA = 6.00 and Core CGPA = 6.00 is on Academic Warning.

A student is required to leave the program with the status Ineligible to Return if either:

  1. the student was on Academic Warning and does not achieve Good Standing at the next Academic Performance Evaluation, or
  2. the student has Overall CGPA of less than 6.00 or Core CGPA of less than 6.00 at any Academic Performance Evaluation.

The College may permit students to study abroad for a year while remaining registered in the program. For those students permitted to study abroad, Carleton credits commensurate to studies taken abroad will be determined by the College and awarded towards the student's degree.
