Welcome, Current Students!
How can we help?
- Log in to Carleton Central.
- Click on “Build Your Timetable/Registration” under the “Registration” section. Choose the term appropriate to you. You will be brought to the class search page where you can enter the fields you wish to search. Remember that registration for the fall and winter terms must be completed separately.
- Narrow your search results with the “Search Criteria” feature. View the “Search Criteria” section on this page for detailed descriptions.
- Once you have completed your search you will arrive on the “Search Results” page and see classes that matched your criteria.
- Check the boxes next to classes you wish to register in. Be aware of restrictions and pre-requisites. Click “Proceed to Worksheet” when you are ready.
- Review your worksheet. Fix any scheduling conflicts that arise. It is recommended that you make multiple worksheets to accommodate for alternative scenarios (i.e. full classes or sections). Save your worksheets.
- When your time-ticket is about to start, double check your course selections to ensure that there are no new warnings. Click on “Proceed to Registration” when your time-ticket has opened and you are ready.
View your Timetable
- Log in to Carleton Central.
- Click on “Student Timetable” under the “Registration” section.
- You will be shown your timetable for the current week. To see your timetable for a future week, enter the date into the field “Go to (YYYY/MM/DD)” and click “Submit”.
- To print your timetable, select the “Print” option in your browser. Be sure to reprint your timetable after making course changes.
- You can also print off your class listing and bring it to the University bookstore when purchasing your books to make sure you buy the books required for your class section.
- You may proceed to “Step 4”.

View your Audit
The audit can be overwhelming at first glance, but once you understand its structure, the audit is a very useful tool in determining your academic path. Audits are available to view 24/7 on Carleton Central. The first step is to login to Carleton Central and click on the MyAudit link. This will allow you to submit an audit and then you can view it online.
These steps will help you read your audit:
There are three different audit options which can help you on your path to success!
1. You can decide to run an audit based on the courses you are currently registered in to view your current path, as well as see your current CGPA.
2. You can choose to run an audit to add hypothetical courses that you may be interested in taking. This option would allow you to see where that course would fit into your degree requirements and you can even choose to add a hypothetical grade to the course to see how it would impact your CGPA.
3. You can choose to run a ‘what-if’ audit, which would allow you to change your program, major, minor, concentration or specialization. This option is beneficial to students who would like to know how the courses they have already taken would fit into new degree requirements. It allows you to see how far behind or ahead you are on your academic path, should you decide to switch your degree or major.
Submitting an Override Request
Students seeking permission to register in a closed section of a course or a course for which they lack prerequisites should submit a Registration Override Request by logging into Carleton Central and clicking Registration Override Requests under the Registration heading. To view or cancel a request, or to check the status (progress) of a previously submitted request, go back to the “Registration Override Requests” page. Note that submitting a request does not guarantee a space in the course. The department will review requests within 3-5 business days and make a decision based on student need and space availability. An email with the department’s decision will be sent to students but students can also view the status of their request in Carleton Central.
Lab exemptions can be offered to students who successfully passed the lab with a minimum of 50% in the lab within the past three years (For example, For Fall 2020 exemptions are valid from Fall 2017 onwards). A lab exemption would allow you to use your previous lab grade and only retake the course part of the course. Please note that there is no option to take part of the lab and then switch to lab exempt during the term or only repeat the lab portion. The deadline to apply for a lab exemption is the last day of registration. Late registration will not be granted.
To apply for a lab exemption, please submit an override for the G1 section of the course you would like lab exemption for. Please note in the comments which term and section you previously took the course (Ex. Fall 2019- CHEM 1001A). If you are eligible, you will receive an email to your Carleton email granting you permission into the G1 section. You must register in the course, tutorial and the G1 section before the last day of registration to qualify. Please note, if you enrolled in a lab section with less than 3 in-person labs, or an online lab section, you are not eligible to enroll in the lab exemption section.
Deadlines and eligibility requirements are not eligible for petitions.
Course and Program Information
2021-2022 Undergraduate Calendar
The Department of Chemistry is often in need of upper year undergraduate students as Teaching Assistants for introductory chemistry courses. A teaching assistantship during undergraduate studies is an amazing opportunity to start building academic skills and experience. You might be grading papers or teaching in the laboratories. A typical TA-ship is five hours per week, and the pay is good!
Co-op is an opportunity to integrate classroom knowledge with degree-specific work experience. It can accelerate development of professional skills, and increase networking opportunities. The Chemistry Co-op program consists of 12 months of work placement as one, two, or three distinct terms. Placements can include private and public sector positions, in laboratory and office settings.
Dean’s Summer Research Internship (DSRI)
Every year, the Dean of Science offers paid summer research internships to top first-year science, computer science and mathematics students. These Dean’s Summer Research Internships (DSRIs) afford students the opportunity to work with professors to conduct research. Currently, students who receive these competitive research internships will be paid about $6,300 ($15/hour for 12 weeks @ 35 hours/week) to work with a professor in the Faculty of Science.
Internship-Carleton University Research Experience for Undergraduate Students (I-CUREUS)
The Internship-Carleton University Research Experience for Undergraduate Students (I-CUREUS) provides funding for undergraduate students to conduct hands-on, faculty-supervised research. Funded equally by both the Discovery Centre and the faculty supervisor, the I-CUREUS program gives students access to research scholarships, mentoring and hands-on experience in their discipline or an area of interest.
Student as Partners Program (SaPP)
Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) offers funding for students interested in working with a faculty member on a teaching innovation project. Projects can relate to (re)-designing of course material, incorporating educational technologies in courses, or working on a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning project, to name a few. Funding is a one-time bursary payment for 130 hours over one academic term. If you are interested in pedagogy and teaching innovation, approach one of your course Instructors to discuss SaPP.
Other Experiential Opportunities
Another opportunity to get a taste of research outside your courses and to start building your resume with real experience in your field is volunteering in a research laboratory. In some instances, and with conditions, it may be possible to obtain a volunteer opportunity to work with one of your Professors. These opportunities are not directly administered by the Program, Department or University, so you must contact the Professors directly to ask if they have available volunteer positions on projects in their laboratories. Prior to reaching out to a professor you may be interested in working with, it is recommended to read about their research interests by visiting our Faculty page and exploring their Full Profiles.
