2018 Summer Orientation Dates

The 2018 Summer Orientation Program will be announced soon. Registration for the program will open on April 16, 2018.

What is Summer Orientation?

Summer Orientation is a one-day program for new students and their parent(s) or guardian(s). Each session focuses on promoting student academic success and personal development. As the first step in a student’s transition to Carleton University, we strongly encourage all new incoming students and their parent(s) or guardian(s) to actively participate.

In addition to receiving a welcome from the President of Carleton University, picking up the student Campus Card and UPASS, doing a campus tour, and attending an all-you-can-eat-lunch at the Fresh Food Company, there will be sessions on the following subjects:

  • Academic Expectations (with a guest faculty member)
  • Academic Support Services
  • Residential Life or Off-Campus living
  • Financing an Education
  • Campus Services (Campus Card, Campus Safety, Health Plan, Involvement Opportunities, Dates and Deadlines)
  • Fall Orientation

While students receive a review of their course selection with an academic advisor, parents and guests will have a chance to attend a session for Supporting Your Student Through Transition, Parent Communication, and FIPPA.
