Service Summary

5.0 credits over the fall and winter terms (or 6.0 with an “Overload”) is the maximum course load for degree students. However, it is by no means the “norm.” Many students, for a variety of reasons, choose to take a reduced course load in first year and sometimes throughout their undergraduate degree. As a result, it can take some students an extra year or so to graduate. And that’s okay! Completing your degree is by no means a race. What’s important is that you enjoy your university years, succeed academically, and leave Carleton with excellent transferable skills and a credential.
