Financial vs. Academic Withdrawal

Make sure you are aware of the separate deadlines for financial and academic withdrawal!

Making registration decisions in Carleton Central involves making a financial and academic commitment for the courses you choose, regardless of attendance. If you do not attend – you must withdraw in Carleton Central (log in through Carleton360) within the published deadlines to cancel your registration. A fee adjustment is dependent on registration being canceled within the published fee deadlines and dependent on your course load.

Note – a course dropped after the deadline for financial withdrawal will receive a grade of Withdrawn (WDN), which appears on your official transcript.

Even if you miss the deadline for financial withdrawal, you might decide to drop a course to avoid a failure or a poor grade showing up on your student record and bringing down your CGPA. The last day for academic withdrawal varies by term. It is your responsibility to drop the course via Carleton Central within the published dates. Make sure you know the deadline to drop a course (see Academic Withdrawal)!

If you are considering withdrawing from a course, you may want to talk to an advisor first. Course withdrawal may affect your student status, as well as your eligibility for student funding, immigration status, residence accommodation and participation in varsity sports, etc.

Please note: Carleton Central is your one-stop shop for registration activities. If you are interested in taking a course, make sure to complete your registration. Simply attending a course does not mean you are registered in it, nor is it grounds for petition or appeal.
