Coaching Summer Welcome Program

One of our ESP academic coaches will be emailing you to schedule a Summer Welcome virtual visit. The coach will answer your questions and take you through essential tools for a smooth entry into Carleton.

This includes your Carleton email, navigating the online learning system, and accessing lecture videos, and how to use ESP resources, among other important stuff. We highly recommend the Summer Welcome visits, as the coach will make sure you are ready to participate in Orientation Day on Sept 6, and succeed in the year ahead!


Join us for Academic Orientation Day

This information will be updated July 2022

How to prepare for Orientation:

  • Pull up your schedule/timetable in Carleton Central. There’s a handy “how-to” video here for how to access up your class schedule/timetable:
  • You’ll have a chance during orientation to meet in smaller groups for your FYSM 1900 (or ESLA) course and your ESP-IESP workshops (ESPW 1000) so be sure you know which sections you’re in. For example, in the schedule below, the student is taking FYSM 1900-B (that’s section “B”) and ESPW 1000-T (section “T”) and ESPW 1000-JJ (section “JJ”).
  • At Orientation we’ll also discuss how to interpret those pesky “course conflict” messages that some of you may see at the bottom of your timetable
