Financing your Studies
The Awards Office offers advice on various financial assistance options and administers financial aid programs. For information on the costs associated with a university education, Carleton’s generous scholarship and bursary program, government and emergency loans or our work-study program, go to carleton.ca/awards.
Information for students admitted with an English as a Second Language (ESL) Requirement
Students with a language test score in the mid-range listed in the ESL admissions chart may have an offer of admission that includes an English language requirement. Students admitted with an English language requirement will begin studies in their degree program, with the requirement that they complete designated foundation ESL courses in their first terms of study. Successful completion of the appropriate ESL credits will fulfil the English language requirement.
If you have been admitted with an ESL requirement, you should check your offer package in Carleton 360 to view the level of your ESL placement.
Information for International Students
We’re thrilled to welcome you to the Carleton community! Be sure to read your offer package carefully, and note any conditions like final documents required and how to maintain your offer. Follow instructions on how to accept your offer. You should also apply for your study permit as soon as you have your offer (you can do this with a conditional offer of admission).

In addition to university wide fall orientation, international students also register in I-Start, the free, online orientation for international students. The International Student Services Office also offers guidance on travel and arrival, as well as supporting your transition to Carleton.
Summer Orientation: CU 1001
All newly admitted students are encouraged to participate in CU 1001. Presented by the Student Experience Office, this orientation program is designed to help students begin a successful university career. New students are invited to attend sessions designed to address their particular needs and concerns.
CU 1001 registration will begin in May. More information is available at carleton.ca/seo.
All newly admitted students should participate in Fall Orientation. Carleton University is well known for its orientation program, and Fall Orientation provides all new students with numerous opportunities to participate in exciting events. This is one Carleton tradition that you will not want to miss! More information is available at carleton.ca/seo/orientation.
Registration for new first-year students begins in June. Everything you need to know about registration can be found at carleton.ca/registration. Be sure to check out our timetabling tool which allows you to search the class schedule and build a draft timetable. When your registration time slot opens, you can use this draft to register for your courses and build your final official timetable.
