Visit the Academic Advising Centre

Located in 302 Tory Building, Academic Advising offers advising sessions on a drop-in basis from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday (excluding holidays).

While our office is busy throughout the day, wait times in the mornings are usually shorter. Depending on the volume of students on any given day, we may reach capacity before 4:00 pm. For more information about visiting our office, please visit the Drop-In Academic Advising Service page.

Please note that during our peak periods (January, September and around academic withdrawal deadlines), wait times can exceed one hour.


EMAIL ADVISING: If your questions are related to course selection, requesting a registration override, department specific restrictions or registration errors they will be forwarded to the appropriate Departmental Advisor. If your questions are related to navigating Carleton Central, how to add/drop a course, building a timetable or registration in general, they will be forwarded to the Registrar’s Office for review.

The Student Registration Assistance team (SRA) is available throughout the summer to assist with the technical side of building a timetable, navigating Carleton Central and submitting registration requests for courses. It is recommended that you speak with your Departmental Advisor for assistance with your major specific course selection and have a good idea of the electives you are interested in prior to speaking with SRA.
