Admission into any of the programs, the tuition fees, etcetera are handled by Carleton University. If you need further information related to these topics it is best to contact the admissions group directly
If you are planning to take the Cooperative education option (Coop), the entrance requirement is 70% and a CGPA of 8.0 (B) to continue on the Coop program; however you can register for coop after you have started in the program
Applicants to the Interactive Multimedia and Design program are required to submit a portfolio of creative work in support of their application (Note: Applicants to the IRM, NET, or PLT programs do not require a portfolio). Portfolios and academic records are considered equally when evaluating an applicant for admission to the program.
All Portfolios should contain:
Note: there is absolutely no advantage in submitting digital work (such as flash animation, modelling, etc.) over non-digital; all pieces are judged solely on their creativity. Higher scoring will be given for your best work (regardless of medium) and broadest range (e.g. one or two only from each medium)
Your portolio must be submitted via our On-line system; all submissions need to be formatted as a single PDF document and any associated videos. Submissions are due March 1st of the year of entry (if the 1st of March falls on a weekend or holiday, portfolios must be received by the following regular working day)
An on-line submission system is available for you to submit your portfolios through the portfolios.carleton.ca website. You will require your Carleton Student ID/Application ID in order to submit a portfolio through this system.
Submissions to the on-line system must be in PDF format
