Carson has been looking for a new club since being released by Barnsley earlier this term.
The former Rangers starlet is keen to take his chance at Hartlepool.
"It's all happened really quickly but it's a really good move for me," told the club's official website.
"Now I am really looking forward to the challenge of getting into the team and helping Hartlepool climb the Second Division.
"I have just had a look at the pitch and it's in fantastic condition - I can't wait to get started."
Meanwhile, Hartlepool have been handed a boost with the news that Gavin Strachan's knee injury is not as serious as initially suspected.
It was feared Strachan may miss the rest of the season after hobbling off against Sheffield Wednesday last weekend, but tests have shown the injury is not serious and he could be back within a month.
In other news, Mark Williams has extended his loan at Stockport for a further two months.
Williams initially joined The Hatters on a month's loan in January, but the club were keen to extend his stay.
