The Carleton University Senate has approved the elimination of the “double-counting” rule that previously determined the maximum number of credits that could count between an Undergraduate student’s major and minor, or between any minor / concentration / specialization and a second minor / concentration / specialization.
With the elimination of this rule, Undergraduate students may count credits between their major / minor or between minors / concentrations / specializations without restriction, provided the credit(s) will satisfy a requirement for the program element(s). The elimination of this rule will be applied without regard for the catalog year in which a student added the program element, and may assist students in the completion of their program requirements.
