Carleton Dates and Deadlines
Visit the Carleton Registrar’s Office website for a list of 2020-2021 Academic Dates and Deadlines.
Academic Orientation Day (AOD)
Academic Orientation Day (AOD) is free and mandatory for all new undergraduate students. This year, Academic Orientation will follow a blended format that includes a CuLearn course that compliments Sprott events. The information provided during AOD is specific to each student’s faculty and department and is a great way to prepare you for your academic career.
The Student Success Officer, Maria Walt, works 1-on-1 with Sprott students and is always ready to hear about your experiences (both successes and struggles). Then she will work with you to identify programs, services and initiatives that will help ensure your success, in or out of the classroom, from your first year to your final year as a Sprott student.
The virtual Sprott Undergraduate Student Lounge is a place for all Sprott students to connect remotely. Similarly to the physical Sprott student lounge, this video call is available for students to enter 24/7. Use this space to meet other Sprott students and feel connected to your Sprott community, whether you are in Canada or around the world.
Sign up to connect with an upper year Sprott student with Sprott Connects, while still practicing social distancing! Virtual meetings will help ensure you stay connected to the Sprott community whether you are in Ottawa, somewhere else in Canada, or all the way around the world!
