APPLICATION TO GRADUATE

Students completing their final courses in Summer 2021 should apply between Thursday, July 15 and Saturday, October 30. More information can be found in the step by step guide.

To see if you are on track to graduate, you can run your own Academic Requirements Report via SOLUS. Find instructions on how to run and read your report on our Academic Requirements Reports webpage.

Need a double-check? We now have a handy tool to help with this inquiry. You can now submit a Degree Check request online and you'll receive a degree audit by email. Please allow up to a week for a response.

You may only apply to graduate in the program/plan in which you are currently registered. If you require a change to your program and/or plan, please contact asc.degree@queensu.ca. This includes the addition or deletion of a Minor.
TIMETABLING AND REGISTRATION RESOURCES

If you are planning to continue your undergraduate studies next year, the 2021-2022 timetable is now available on SOLUS. In thinking about what to take next year, please review the Academic Calendar, and your Academic Requirements Report (ARR). Students are expected to run their ARR both prior to and after registration. It is a tool to help ensure you are registered properly in courses that fulfil your Plan requirements and follow all regulations. Learn more by reviewing our ARR page.
REGISTRATION, OPEN ENROLMENT, AND SUPPORT SERVICES
 
The registration period (August 9 to 20) and the Open Enrolment Period (August 30 to September 20) are the busiest times of year. To assist as many students as possible in a timely manner, during these times, all of our staff will be offering assistance – both registration-related help and academic advising via telephone at 613-533-6708 (first year students) and 613-533-2470 (upper year students) on a first-come, first-served basis. Our phones are answered from 9 am until noon and 1 to 4 pm EST, Monday to Friday.
 
From August 9 to 20 we will also be offering a daily Zoom drop in session from noon until 1 pm EST to answer any registration-related questions you have. See more information below and join us.
 
Registration Pause (Paws) Day is Tuesday, August 17. Enrolment in courses cannot be done on this day to allow for course waitlists to be processed. Stay tuned on social media and follow #FASpaws for pictures of our Arts and Science paws (pets)!
 
During the week of August 23-27, between the Registration and Open Enrolment Periods, the Faculty of Arts and Science will be open virtually but with reduced services available. Academic advising will only be available on an emergency basis by phoning our main line at 613-533-2470. Many Arts and Science Departments will also be closed during this time. It’s time for us all to take a break as there will again be a pause in course enrolment. 

Our regular academic advising appointments, email advising, degree quick checks and Friday afternoon Zoom sessions will resume after Monday, September 20.
ASCX 400: INTERDISCIPLINARY CLIENT-BASED PROJECTS

Looking for a hands-on learning experience? We now have nearly 50 projects for you to choose from for our new fourth-year interdisciplinary project experience course.

While addressing a real problem or project, you will hone transferable skills that employers are searching for, such as project management, problem solving, communication, and how to work with clients and stakeholders.

Projects range from creating apps and audio tours, fundraising campaigns and feasibility studies to creating business, marketing and communications plans as well as engineering, computing, and technology projects.

See the full list of projects and project descriptions on the ASCX 400 course page. You can enrol in the course through the standard registration process during the registration period.
