Carleton’s English department strives to assist students in selecting the best possible courses to support the development of their individual research programs. All students must consult the Graduate Supervisor before registering for courses as well as adding or dropping them. Moreover, by consulting with the Graduate Supervisor, students avoid further unforeseeable difficulties related to course registration and program status; for example, if the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research perceives a student as dropping down to part-time status, it may automatically withdraw funding.

There is a “block” in the on-line registration system that will prevent you from registering until this consultation has taken place. You may discuss your program either in person or by phone. An appointment for counseling can be obtained by contacting the Graduate Administrator.  In any event, you should have available for the counseling session your offer of acceptance and a list of English courses that you have completed at the undergraduate and/or graduate level.
