The Carleton University Undergraduate and Graduate Calendars are published several months in advance of the beginning of the academic year and are intended to assist readers to understand the academic and administrative structure, policies and procedures of the University, and to describe the academic programs offered. By the act of registration each student becomes bound by the policies and regulations of Carleton University. Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the general information, rules, and regulations of Carleton University, as well as the specific requirements of each program, degree, diploma or certificate sought. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the courses chosen are appropriate to the program requirements.

Carleton University reserves the right to make changes in the information contained in the University Calendars without prior notice. Not every course listed in the Undergraduate or Graduate Calendar will necessarily be offered in any academic year. Carleton reserves the right to limit the number of students who enrol in any program or course. While reasonable efforts will be made to offer courses as required within programs, admission to a program does not guarantee admission to any given course. If there is an inconsistency between the Undergraduate or Graduate Calendars and such regulations and policies as established by resolution of Senate, the version of such material as it is established by Senate will prevail.

Carleton University does not accept, and hereby expressly disclaims, any and or all responsibility or liability to any person, persons or group, either direct or indirect, consequential or otherwise, arising out of any one or more of such changes and, specifically, the University hereby disclaims liability to any person who may suffer loss as a result of reliance upon any information contained in the University Calendars. Additions and corrections will be posted at the Updates page.

Carleton University disclaims all responsibility and liability for loss or damage suffered or incurred by any student or other party as a result of delays in or termination of its services, courses or classes for any reason whatsoever including but not limited to by reason of force majeure, fire, flood, riots, war, strikes, lock‐outs, damage to University property, financial exigency or other events beyond the reasonable control of the University. Carleton University also disclaims any and all liability for damages arising as a result of errors, interruptions or disruptions to operations or connected with its operations or its campuses, arising out of computer failure or non‐compliance of its computing systems.
