Carleton University has three main registration periods: Fall, Winter and Summer. This page will help you plan your courses and academic career more effectively.

Academic Planning and Audits

Plan Early and Plan Often

Get a head start on registration by planning your courses early. We recommend that students check in with the Undergraduate Administrator (advisor) at least a month before registration starts to ensure they are on track for a successful registration period. Planning for the fall/winter period after first year? Check in as soon as your winter grades are available.

Review Your Audit

The Academic Audit is a all-in-one snapshot of your progress and assessment tool to help you plan your next steps. Students are encouraged to become acquainted with reading and understanding their audits. Make a change to your schedule? Be sure to review your audit afterwards to make sure you are still on track. Learn more on how to read your audit.
