Special Students are those who have not been admitted to a degree program but who are taking degree-credit courses to qualify for admission, to improve professional qualifications, for transfer credit, or for personal interest. More information is available at the Special Students page.

Students who have a letter of permission from another university must be admitted as Special Students before registering. More information is available at the Visiting Students page.
Registering in Graduate Level Courses
Special students enrolling in graduate level courses, must apply for access to the course through Carleton Central.
