* Carroll College re-calculates the GPA for each applicant in order to provide some standardization to our merit scholarship process. Hence, the high school GPA recorded on the student's transcript is not used for admission or merit scholarship consideration. The GPA is re-calculated using unweighted grades from only the academic coursework reported on the applicant's official high school transcript. Academic coursework includes, but is not necessarily limited to: English, History/Social Science, Mathematics, Science, Foreign Language, Visual & Performing Arts which include an academic component and Technology courses. Courses that are Vocational or Extra Curricular are not utilized for the purposes of recalculating a GPA.
The following scale is used in Carroll's calculation of GPA:
A , A, A- 4.0
B , B, B- 3.0
C , C, C- 2.0
D , D, D- 1.0
Although Carroll does not use weighted GPA's for merit scholarship consideration, students are encouraged to pursue a rigorous high school curriculum and to take advantage of any advanced coursework their school offers that will challenge them academically and in which they can be successful.
To be eligible, students must have graduated from high school, completed less than 1 full year of college and attend Carroll full-time (12 or more credit hours per semester).
In addition to merit scholarships and awards, financial need is considered for students who submit a FAFSA.
The results of this merit calculator are an ESTIMATE. Official awarding of your merit scholarship will be done by the Office of Admission upon acceptance into Carroll College.
