Any student who has attempted college coursework after graduating from high school is considered a transfer student at Carroll College. Carroll will accept credits from regionally accredited colleges and universities.
- You must have earned a C or better in an academic course that is college level (100 level or higher at most institutions) to earn transfer credit at Carroll.
- Generally, we will not accept professional or vocationally-oriented courses.
- A maximum of 60 lower-level credits will be transferred to Carroll. This includes any credit granted for Advanced Placement exam scores, International Baccalaureate exam scores, and any credit allowed for military service.
- At least one-half of the credits required for your chosen major or minor must be earned at Carroll.
- Courses which are transferable but do not meet Core or major requirements will be credited as elective credits and will be counted toward the total number of credits needed for graduation.
- An official evaluation of your transcript(s) and credits will be provided to you after you are accepted to Carroll.

A note for students interested in Nursing
Due to limited space, the nursing department only considers currently enrolled Carroll College students for entrance into the nursing program. Therefore, a transfer student must be enrolled at Carroll for at least one semester, as well as having met the coursework prerequisites, in order to apply to the nursing program. Once a student is admitted to the nursing program, it is a full three-year curriculum to earn a BSN, regardless of prior credits completed. More information about the application to the department can be found at the Carroll Nursing website.
