Service Update

As the current Public Health crisis continues to evolve in the Ottawa region and around the world, Carleton University has been constantly re-evaluating our plans in light of new information. The safety of our community and all its members is our first priority. Please continue to check Carleton’s COVID-19 information website and its FAQ section for updated information.

Applications for Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 will only be accepted for institutions within Canada or fully online courses at institutions outside of Canada and these will require confirmation of the course delivery method.

Letter of Permission

Carleton Degree or Certificate students may apply to study at any other accredited university on a Letter of Permission. Each course you choose to take must be approved by the Registrar’s Office.
