COURSE LOAD Students are required to register in a full-time course load as defined by Carleton University for academic and financial purposes. One course at another university does not necessarily equal 0.5 Carleton credits. Eg. 6 ECTS = 0.5 Carleton credits, 30 ECTS = 2.5 Carleton credits. Number of credits transferred depends on the number of credits completed.
TRANSFER OF CREDIT TO CARLETON UNIVERSITY RECORD Once you have confirmed your registration, a notation of CEX (current exchange) will appear on your audit and you will receive a confirmation email. Successful credit (or pass) will appear as EXC on your audit and your Carleton University transcript (the grade itself is not transferred).
TRANSFER OF CREDIT TO YOUR CARLETON UNIVERSITY RECORD Failures or absent without withdrawal will transfer to your Carleton record and will appear on your official transcript as an F. Transferred F’s will be calculated into your CGPA until the credit is replaced. You will be notified through Carleton email when the transfer of credits to your Carleton record is complete. If credits are not transferred where you expect them to count in your program, please speak with your program advisor.
BEFORE YOU RETURN Prior to your departure, please make arrangements for your transcripts to be sent to: Chau Hoang, Exchange Program Coordinator, International Student Services Office (ISSO), Room 128 University Centre, Carleton University.
BEFORE YOU RETURN Make sure to receive a copy or copies of the transcripts for your own files. Remember that transcripts may be delayed. Year level increase for registration purposes for the following Fall/Winter terms only occurs when we have confirmed your course registration for all terms of your exchange.
