Online courses for non-Carleton students

Regarding Carleton’s courses, please note the following:

  • Courses begin and end in accordance with the university’s dates and deadlines.
  • Within the course registration system, degree students are given priority.
  • Courses may have prerequisite requirements or be restricted to degree students only (e.g., first-year seminars; courses in architecture, business, engineering, industrial design and journalism). Some undergraduate and all graduate courses require the permission of the department or individual instructor.
  • Not all courses listed in the university’s calendars are offered in a given year. Carleton’s complete course offerings for the current academic year, including online and face-to-face courses, can be viewed on the public class schedule.
