Most CUOL courses are recorded on-campus during a regular class, and the lectures are then made available to local and distance students using a number of different means of access. This means that CUOL classes are as close as possible to being in the classroom – you can listen to classroom discussions, hear questions, and see the lectures just as they are delivered to fellow students. Some CUOL courses are designed to be offered “web-only” through the course website. They normally involve recorded presentations, online activities and assignments, discussion forums and more.
To take a CUOL course, you must be a Carleton Student. To become a Carleton Student in a degree program, see the Admissions website. To become a Special Student (not admitted to a degree program but taking degree-credit courses to qualify for admission, to improve professional qualifications, for transfer credit, or for personal interest), see the Registrar’s website.
Once you are a Carleton student, you register for CUOL classes in Carleton Central.
