Application Requirements

Two Carroll Students Smiling

We are looking for future Saints.

Admitted candidates are those who, in the view of the Admission Committee, are likely to succeed in and contribute to the Carroll College community. The Committee conducts a comprehensive review when evaluating and determining the admissibility of candidates. In all cases, the underlying principle of comprehensive review for admission consideration is the assessment of preparedness, potential, and purpose. The process is one that weighs heavily on the candidate’s past academic performance with the greatest emphasis placed on the candidate’s grades and the quality of academic preparation (curriculum).

Admitted candidates will demonstrate a strong academic background. Carroll does not have established quotas or standardized admission requirements. Decisions are based on a student’s academic performance during high school, verbal and quantitative reasoning skills, letter of recommendation, demonstrated commitment to intellectual achievement, and performance on standardized college entrance examinations. In the case of transfer applicants, collegiate-level work previously completed is considered.

Freshman Admission

Freshman applicants are strongly encouraged to follow a college preparatory curriculum. While such a curriculum is recommended, it is not required in order for a student to be considered for admission to Carroll College.

First-year student admission requirements

Transfer Student Admission

Carroll welcomes applications from students whose educational interests will be served by transferring from two- or four-year colleges. Students are considered transfer candidates if they have attempted college-level coursework from a regionally accredited college or university following their high school graduation. (Students with college-level credit from concurrent enrollment programs such as Running Start, are still considered first-year students)
