Why Add Planned Courses?

The planned audit can also help you determine what courses you should register in for the upcoming year. It allows you to add hypothetical courses to your audit to see where courses should fit into your degree requirements prior to registration.

You can even assign grades to your hypothetical courses to determine how your CGPA’s will change, if you succeed with your goal in that hypothetical course.

REMEMBER: Adding a hypothetical course is not the same as registering in a class. To actually register in a course, click on Add/Drop courses section on Carleton Central and be sure to check for required pre-requisites before registering in your classes.

How to add planned courses to your audit

  • Access your audit through Carleton 360 (https://360.carleton.ca)
  • Click ‘Courses’ from the top menu, and then ‘Add Planned Course’.
  • Enter the academic term you plan to take the course, the course code (ex. BIOL 1000), the credit value (ex. 0.5) and the Grade (ex. PA+ = planned A+).
  • Click ‘Add to List’.
  • Repeat for any additional planned courses.
  • Click ‘Audits’ from the top menu and then ‘Request New’.
  • Under ‘Advanced Settings’, click ‘Click to view available options’, check the ‘Planned Courses’ box.
  • Click ‘Run Declared Programs’.
  • Your audit will be ready in a few moments.

Key Points

There are a few points you need to know about your planned audit:

  • Keep in mind that you might plan hypothetical courses which may not be offered in the term you wish to take them.
  • You can assign grades to your hypothetical courses to see how your CGPA’s will change if you earn the grades you hope to earn in your hypothetical courses. You can do this simply by changing the grade of HYP to a letter grade on the drop-down menu
  • The edit function allows you to change the term, course, or grade for your hypothetical courses.
  • To delete or edit planned courses, revisit the ‘Courses’ menu item and click either the ‘Edit’ or ‘Delete’ buttons.

Please note course offerings are subject to change from year to year; ensure you check the courses in your plan to see if they are actually offered in the year and/or term that you plan on taking them.
