Want to know where you stand?
Run your AAR

The Academic Requirements Report is designed to give you advice on what courses you will need to take to complete your degree, as well as warn you if you have broken any of the various rules that govern which courses may be used in a particular degree program.
 



Reverse Capacities and Waitlists
Reserve Capacity
During the first 10 days of registration, many courses will have enrolment restrictions on them. This is to ensure that the students who require those courses for their programs have priority to the classes. If you are trying to enroll in a class, and you receive an error message stating that the class is "reserved", that means that other students are being given priority and you will need to wait. However, all course reserves will be lifted on 12:01 AM EST on July 26th. In the meantime, we would encourage you to join the wait list.
Waitlists
All single-term Arts and Science classes have been set up with waiting lists. If the class you are trying to add is full you can join the waitlist for that class. For more information on Waitlists, visit our website here.
For students ready to apply to graduate.
Step 1: Check that your Academic Requirements will be met
The Academic Requirements Report is designed to give you advice on what courses you will need to take to complete your degree, as well as warn you if you have broken any of the various rules that govern which courses may be used in a particular degree program. While the ARR is a useful guide, the ultimate authority on all academic requirements in the Faculty of Arts and Science is the Arts and Science Calendar; if there is a discrepancy, the online Calendar requirements take precedence.  To run your AAR, see the above video.
You should consult the  Chair of Undergraduate Studies  in your home Department if you have any concerns or questions you may have regarding your academic plan requirements. 

Step 2: Complete any elective requirements
If you are having trouble filling your elective requirements consider taking an 
online Queen's course or a course from another University on an  approved Letter of Permission.
*Please note that the deadline for Queen's to receive a transcript from another University in time to graduate is Oct 15, 2018.

Step 3: Get some guidance
Career Services and the  School of Graduate Studies are both available to assist with questions regarding graduate studies options. 

Step 4: Apply to graduate
The application to graduate for Fall 2018 will open on July 15, 2018 in your Student Service Centre in SOLUS. 

You must formally "Apply to Graduate" through the Solus Student Centre. Honour students are assessed by their department(s) to determine their eligibility to graduate. Completion of an Application to Graduate does not guarantee the awarding of a degree / diploma / certificate. All applications are subject to academic review by the appropriate faculty or school, and approval by the Senate Committee on Academic Procedures (SCAP). The Faculty Office assesses the three year general degrees and minor degrees. 

Students may only apply to graduate in the program/plan in which you are currently registered. If any changes are required to your program and/or plan you will need to email  asc.degree@queensu.ca .This includes the addition or deletion of minor plans and any other questions.
 
Here is the "how-to apply" step by step guide
