Arts and Science students Queen's University

Congratulations on your admission to Queen’s! You’ve decided to accept the challenge of pursuing your goals with the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen’s University, and we’re committed to helping you succeed. Learn about Orientation Week, Student ID Cards, Course Registration, Cha Gheill & the Oil Thigh and read a Gaels' first year journal.

Second year is all about making choices. Select your plan, choose your electives plus supporting courses, and where to live. There are new awards to apply for as well. Get started by determining your GPA and academic standing.

The most important thing on your mind in your upper years of your undergrad? Graduating of course, but before that you may need to change your plan or want to explore opportunities for International Exchanges in your third year. And once you graduate, work with Career Services to get you on your way.

No matter what faculty or school you belong to at Queen's, there are people on staff to help you with your academics and adjustment to student life. Find resources related to International Students, Health & Fitness, Disability Services, PASS - Peer Academic Support Service, Academic Support, Academic Advising Appointments, and Career Services.

Understand and interpret your Academic Requirements Report (ARR), available through SOLUS. 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.

Academic integrity provides the foundation for learning, teaching, research and service at Queen's University. Its central values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility enable instructors, students and staff to contribute to a community of knowledge dedicated to the freedom of inquiry and open exchange that characterizes the educational environment at Queen's.

The new Faculty of Arts and Science Protocol for Short-Term Academic Consideration is intended to guide students, instructors and advisors in situations where extenuating circumstances are interfering with a student's ability to complete academic requirements related to a course(s) for a short period of time. This protocol is being developed in response to the recently-approved Senate Policy on Academic Consideration for Students in Extenuating Circumstances.
