What is a change of program elements?

A change of program elements is:

  • Switching to a different program within the same degree
  • Switching between Honours, General and Major (where available)
  • Adding or dropping a Major, Minor, Concentration, or Specialization

How do I change my program elements?

  • Changes to your program are made through the “Change of Program Elements” feature of Carleton Central.
  • Changes require up to 3 days for processing. Processing time may vary throughout the school year.
  • Term specific deadlines are posted within the Carleton Central application.
  • Requests to change your Degree should be directed towards the admissions office via the internal application
  • Requests to remove the Co-Op option from your program should be directed to the co-op office website via their online submission form.
