If your student has been accepted to Carleton, their next steps could be checking out our CU Transition Guide and registering for Summer Orientation. All new students and their parent(s) or guardian(s) can attend Summer Orientation.

During the program, new students become part of the Carleton University community by interacting with other students, faculty, and staff in both structured information sessions and small informal groups. Parent and family orientation sessions are offered concurrently with the student sessions in order to answer questions and address any concerns that family members may have. Parents and guardians will have the opportunity to talk with Carleton University faculty and staff during these sessions.
