What is CU 1001?

The CU 1001 program is a free online bundled mini course experience that provides new students with a focused introduction to the Carleton community and prepares you for your journey as a future Raven. We highly encourage all incoming students to actively participate as the first step in their transition.

CU 1001 includes modules that explore the 5 Success Pillars: Academics, Finances, Campus Life, Wellness and Employability through videos, presentations and other digital elements.

Ravens Talks Web sessions with our student leaders and staff will also be available as an opportunity to ask any questions and connect with the Carleton community ​members.
