Important Information

  • International Exchange is administered through the International Student Services Office (ISSO). The FAQ below is for how participating in an International Exchange affects your courses, graduation, grading, etc.
  • Not all courses offered by your host university will be listed on the International Exchange Database since courses are only added to the database as students register for them. Some courses listed may not be available for registration during your exchange terms.
  • Courses may need to be bundled together to obtain 0.5 Carleton credits or 6 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). For example, 3 Political Science courses valued at 2 ECTS each can be bundled together, upon approval of the Registrar’s Office .to satisfy the equivalency of one 0.5 Carleton credit.
  • Students are encouraged to meet with their departmental advisor to ensure they take courses relevant to their program and to remain on track when they return to their studies at Carleton.
