Dates and Deadlines

Don’t miss a deadline. Be sure to visit the dates and deadlines webpage for all important registration related dates.

Review Your Online Degree Audit Report

An audit is your tailor-made map to navigating through your degree requirements. It records your registration and current academic status. Because the audit is an ever-changing document, it is critical that you review your audit often, especially after you have added or dropped courses. You have access to your audit 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through Carleton Central (central.carleton.ca).

To view your audit online, simply log in to Carleton Central and select “myAudit – submit an Audit” from the Student Records menu and follow the directions from there.

If you have difficulties understanding your audit, the Academic Advising Centre (AAC) has a great online resource with tips and helpful FAQs on how to read your audit. We strongly encourage you to check the site out because having a strong understanding of how to read your audit is an important strategy for selecting your courses at registration, as well as for graduation.

Check Your Carleton Email

Remember to check your Carleton email account regularly because Carleton uses this as the main means of contacting you throughout the academic year. You can also have your Carleton messages forwarded to an account that you use regularly. Please keep in mind that spam filters on your email account may block messages from your Carleton account. To ensure that you continue to receive messages from the university throughout the year, please identify carleton.ca as one of your “safe” domains in your spam or junk mail filter.

Self-Exploration Group

This eleven week program offers a valuable contrast and a complement to academic studies at University.  It is designed to explore the rewards and challenges of meeting and collaborating with other people.  It proposes to help participants explore who they are and who they can become.  We will try to find a way to share what we are passionate about and thereby discover the foundation of friendship and celebration.

The group will be guided by a social worker, Jane Keeler, and a psychiatrist, Barry Dollin who both have many years of experience working in group settings and who continue to enjoy the challenge of exploring the mystery of how people can help one another.

There will be no academic credits for this program but the benefits are usually tangible.  We recommend that you email us your questions and that you schedule an individual interview to speak about the curriculum if you have any interest or compelling doubts about the value this program could have for you.

When: Thursday, January 19 to Thursday, March 30, 2017
Where: Meeting Room, Main floor, Ice House
Time: 10 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.
Facilitator: Barry Dollin MD, FRCP and Jane Keeler MSW
