Summer course registration reminder

A reminder that summer course registration is open. Here’s how to register:

  1. Decide how many courses you want to take:
    • Your default course load is 1.0 credit (part-time);
    • Apply to increase your course load to full-time.
  2. Build a draft timetable in Carleton Central.
    • Check out this handy video on how to build a draft timetable.
  3. Check if you have any registration holds.
    • Your ESP registration hold should expire on March 15th.
    • If you have unpaid fees, you may have a financial hold that prevents registration.
  4. Register. Get an error message? You can ask for permission to take the class using the Course Override Request form. No guarantees, but it doesn’t hurt to try.
  5. Pay fees. See the fee payment methods here.

Fees are due April 25th but can be deferred if you have applied for OSAP. Details on payment and the conditions to defer are on the Student Accounts website.
