Your Start to Student Life at Carleton

Description: CU 1001 is a free online mini course experience that provides new students with a focused introduction to the Carleton community. This course takes students through 5 success pillars: Academics, Finances, Campus Life, Wellness, and employability.

In addition to the 5 core pillars, CU 1001 will feature 5 optional mini-modules, one for each Carleton Faculty: the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Engineering and Design, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Public Affairs, and the Sprott School of Business! While the faculty modules are optional to complete, it’s highly recommended that students check out their respective faculty module as it provides a more in-depth understanding of the faculty, including what students can expect and what is expected of the student, the specific services and resources offered, and how to get involved within the faculty!

Live, virtual info sessions will be hosted throughout the summer, allowing participants to meeting campus representatives and have their questions answered in real-time.

New for this summer; CU 1001 will be offering Experience Days which feature campus tours led by CU 1001 Orientation Leaders.  These will be available on select dates through July and August with a separate registration being available exclusively to CU 1001 participants through the Brightspace course. (Ottawa Public Health guidelines to be followed in terms of capacity limits).

Prerequisite(s): Accepted Admission into Carleton University for fall 2022.

Length: Roughly 2 hours. CU 1001 can be completed bit by bit or all at once, whichever is preferred!

Virtual course will be launching on June 27, 2022.
