Carleton University uses an online registration system that lets you select and register for courses and make course changes over the internet from anywhere in the world. Of course, only students who have been formally accepted into their program of study are able to register for courses. Any conditions placed on your acceptance (e.g. if documents requested in your offer of admission are missing), must be removed by presenting the appropriate official documentation to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs. As long as you have conditions remaining on your acceptance, you will not be able to register.
