We have a lot of great things happening (both on-campus and online) at Carolina University. However, none of those are possible without our academic programs. Our new catalog is available at catalog.carolinau.edu. It is a searchable website that should be used as a tool to assist you in your academic endeavors. We want you to enjoy your time as a student and enjoy the benefits of being a Carolina University student; just remember that academics must come first.


Academic Progress 

We get it. No one likes to talk about these things... but it is important that you understand the potential negative impact of your GPA.  According to the Academic Catalog, academic warning and/or academic suspension can affect a student's ability to continue with classes and/or extracurricular activities and change financial aid status, including federal student aid.

Essentials of eLearning

A 30-minute primer on navigating the new platform

Join me for an overview of the eLearning platform. We will walk through the basic navigation of the course contexts, demonstrate how to add posts, submit papers, and more. Every course you take at Carolina University has an eLearning course context, even if you are a face-to-face student. If you have the app, that's a great start; however, we believe the best experience for many tasks like researching, writing, and taking major exams, are best accomplished in a browser on a computer or laptop.
