Getting Started

  • Review course prerequisite requirements and any other items that may restrict you from registering.
  • Review curriculum information (your degree, major, faculty, etc.) for every new academic term.
  • If you have been granted any special registration permission or overrides, they will be displayed in this step.
  • Any discrepancies should be reported to the Registrar’s Office (undergraduate students) or to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs (graduate students).

Quick Guide

  1. Log in to Carleton Central.
  2. Click on “Getting Started” under the “Registration” section. You will be asked to specify an initial term of registration. Choose the term appropriate to you.
  3. This is where you will see your personalized time-ticket. You may begin to register at the specified date/time, but registration remains open until the last day to add classes for the term. Visit the dates and deadlines page for all pertinent registration dates.
  4. If your Student Status or Academic Standing prevents registration, please contact the Registrar’s Office or Graduate Studies
  5. Holds may prevent registration. If you have holds, click on the “View Holds” link to view the details. Contact the originator of the Hold if you have questions.  Contact information can be found in the Carleton Central Online Help screens (click “Help”).
  6. Once you have confirmed all information is accurate, you may move on to the next step.
