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.

  • All new students should review this site.
  • International students should visit the Information for International Students site for information about attending International Student Orientation. All international students attending Carleton on a U.S. government-issued visa are required to attend.
  • Transfer students should also review the Information for Transfer Students.
