Registration for courses at Carleton is done electronically through Carleton Central. It is important that you familiarize yourself with Carleton Central as it will be your one-stop service for registration, student records, admission, and tuition fee information.

Registration Dates

Registration for the Fall 2021 term for all new and returning graduate students will be available on July 5, 2021. You will be able to register for courses anytime after this date up until the deadlines posted for each session.

Please check the time ticket to see when you can register on that day.

Conditions on Admission

In most cases, an Offer of Admission is made with one or more conditions. Before registering for classes, you must meet all of the conditions on your Offer of Admission. You can view these conditions on your Statement of Standing on Admission in Carleton Central. These conditions may include the submission of an official transcript indicating that your previous degree has been conferred or the submission of an official test score.

Terms and Conditions

When you accept your Offer of Admission and Offer of Funding, if applicable, you are also acknowledging that you have read and have agreed to the Terms and Conditions of Admission and Funding.

Course Selection

The Graduate Calendar holds the official policies and procedures for graduate level study at NPSIA. You can also find a listing of courses and official course descriptions.  The Selected Topics Courses for Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 are now available.

When selecting your courses for the term, it is helpful to review the Program Requirements of your program by clicking on the appropriate link via the Graduate Programs list. Should you have any questions regarding course selection, please contact the administrator for the program to which you have been admitted to.

At any time you can build a sample timetable within Carleton Central or through the Public Class Schedule.


Prior to registering for courses, you should review and understand the General Regulations in the official Graduate Calendar.

For additional assistance with the registration process, you can use the Carleton Central “How To” Videos produced by the Registrar’s Office.
