If you are starting at Carleton University this fall, we encourage you to take these steps to prepare to be a Carleton Raven!

  • Find out how you can prepare for your arrival at Carleton by reviewing the Pathways to Graduation website.
  • Attend Summer Orientation, a one-day program that focuses on promoting student academic success and personal development.
  • Apply online for your Campus Card, a multi-purpose ID for Carleton students. You can pick up your Campus Card when you arrive at Carleton in the fall. New students who apply online for their student ID card and who are eligible will receive their U-Pass (bus pass) with their Campus Card.
  • Download Carleton University’s mobile app, Carleton Mobile, to view your class and exam schedules, access grades and navigate campus using the campus map.

If you are also moving into residence, we encourage you to review the move-in guidelines and recommended packing list.
