Congratulations on your upcoming exchange! Studying on exchange is an enriching, and often life-transforming, experience where learning extends beyond the classroom walls.

In order to prepare you for your upcoming journey, the Exchange Team has put together the following pre-departure checklist. Please note that it is important that you track and meet all responsibilities and deadlines outlined below. Failing to meet pre-departure requirements may result in your removal from the Exchange Program. Your host institution will also provide you with information about your upcoming exchange that may include important pre-arrival instructions. Please continue to check your Carleton email address regularly as you prepare for exchange to ensure you do not miss any correspondence from your Host Institution or from the Carleton University Exchange Team.

If your plans change at any time and you decide that you no longer wish to study abroad, you must notify the Exchange Team (ISSO, 128 UC) of your withdrawal as soon as possible by contacting exchange@carleton.ca. Please include your full name, Carleton ID number, and the name of your host institution.
