The Academic Advising Centre (AAC)

The Academic Advising Centre’s (AAC) primary focus is to support undergraduate and special students in achieving academic success.

  • Strategies to improve or maximize your CGPA
  • Taking a reduced course load or a leave of absence from your program

The best way to connect with our office is by using our Academic Advising Request Form. You can also email us at from your Carleton CMAIL account. Don’t forget to include your student number. We are also offering advising on a drop-in basis, Monday to Friday between 8:30am to 4:30pm. We recommend coming in before 3pm to allow enough time to meet with an advisor.
