    2. be registered as a full-time student in the Industrial Design program;

In addition, students whose first language is not English who are admitted to Carleton based on CAEL, IELTS, TOEFL or MELAB assessments are also required to take the Spoken English Test for Co-op students and attain a minimum score of 5.0.
