ESP/IESP Advising update: withdrawal deadline Wednesday, April 14

Withdrawal deadline: Wednesday, April 14, 2021

The withdrawal deadline for courses is tomorrow Wednesday, April 14th.

  • You can login to Carleton Central to drop classes online yourself. Click here for instructions.
  • Or you can contact us and we will be able to drop a course at your request until April 14th at 4:30 pm.

Withdrawing has consequences for qualifying for a degree.

With the flexible grading options (see message below) it is possible that it might be better to keep a course than to drop it.

We recommend emailing us for advice before you make the decision about whether to withdraw:

Flexible and Compassionate Grading options and ESP/IESP

The university has continued compassionate grading policies this year. As students in ESP and IESP, this affects you a little differently as you are still working toward qualifying for a program. Here is what the university has told us about SAT/UNSAT grades and ESP/IESP admission to a degree:

In general the Admissions Office will consider ESP/IESP applications where students have completed at least 2.0 of 3.0 credits with grades.

  • ESP/IESP students who are completing the year with 3.0 credits can be considered for admission with one credit of SAT/UNS grades.
    • For most programs in the Bachelor of Arts, this means you would need to present a GPA of C+ (6.0 on the Carleton 12.0 scale) on the remaining credits (at least 2.0 graded credits). Some majors have higher CGPA requirements.

Students applying to Science, Health Science, Commerce and Engineering would still need to satisfy all prerequisite course requirements (with minimum grades in the relevant courses, typically MATH, COMP, CHEM, etc., as applicable) and will have higher CGPA requirements.

Note: UNSAT grades do not require an application; all F grades will be automatically converted to UNSAT in May.
