Under the Student Choice Initiative, effective the Fall 2019 term, students are able to learn about their fees and make informed decisions about their choices regarding optional non-tuition fees.

The provincial government has provided a framework for defining non-tuition fees as either compulsory or optional. The fees displayed on the Optional Non-Tuition Fees page on your Carleton Central account during the registration process are the optional non-tuition fees.
