In order to be eligible to graduate, students must have completed the total required number of units for the Program:
|Bachelor of Arts (Honours)||114.0|

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 Student Services.
To be considered eligible to graduate, you will need to have met all of the academic requirements for your Program/Plan. You may view your academic advisement report in your Student Services Centre under: My Academics -> Academic Requirements. All shopping cart and planner courses must be removed prior to running the report.
Questions regarding your Plan requirements can be answered by your department(s).
To graduate, students must have a minimum GPA on all courses taken at Queen’s (cumulative GPA), as follows:
|Cumulative GPA||Degree Eligibility|
|1.60 or above||3-year degree:|
B.A., B.Sc., B.Cmp., B.F.A., B.P.H.E.
|1.90 or above||4-year Honours degree:|
B.A.(Hons.), B.Sc.(Hons.), B.Cmp.(Hons.), B.F.A(Hons.), B.P.H.E.(Hons.), B.Mus.
Specific course requirements for all these degrees remain unchanged.
You must formally "Apply to Graduate" through the Solus Student Centre. (Please do NOT use Google Chrome when accessing SOLUS to submit your application. Compatibility issues could lead to applications not being saved in our system).
Honour students are assessed by their department(s) to determine their eligibility to graduate. The Faculty Office assesses the three year general degrees and minor degrees.
An issue has been identified that may have affected the saving of your application in SOLUS. The current version of SOLUS only supports certain web browsers. For example, it does not support Google Chrome. Therefore, if you have applied to graduate using Google Chrome, the application may or may not have been saved correctly.
Once you have verified that your application has been saved, please continue to check ‘Maintain Convocation Details’ for:
If you have applied and your application is not in SOLUS, please try again using a supported web browser. For a list of supported web browsers, please visit our website at: http://www.queensu.ca/registrar/OURInfoCentre.html. If, after you’ve reapplied and checked ‘Maintain Convocation Details’, you are still having problems, please contact the Graduation Staff immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be happy to help.
If you are an undergraduate student who has applied to graduate and intends to enroll in a course in a future term, you must contact the Arts and Science faculty office and fill out a Return to Studies Form to be admitted into a post-degree program. You may then enrol in a course under the post-degree program in SOLUS.
