Welcome, New Carleton Students

Welcome to Carleton! We want to help our new students make the transition from high school and home to Carleton College as smoothly as possible. To guide you on your way, we've created this information center specifically for new students. If you still have questions after you've read these pages, feel free to contact us for assistance.

Mailing #1 (for students): mailed on May 15, 2020. This mailing contains your permanent Carleton username and a temporary password (which should be changed upon initial log-in), which you will use to log in and complete forms that are due over the summer. You cannot access these forms with the credentials you used during the admissions process.

Mailing #2 (for parents): mailed on May 22, 2020.

Please note:
Carleton's fall term begins in mid-September, and though registration information is available by the middle of July, First-Year students don't begin registration until mid-August.
