    Transfer of Credits Policy

    One of the most important considerations for transfer students is knowing what credits will transfer to Carroll. We accept up to 62 lower division semester credits (93 quarter credits) from regionally accredited colleges and universities, as long as you’ve earned a C- or better in 100-level (or higher) college courses.  Carroll can transfer up to two semester credits of physical education courses.  We're happy to take a look at your official or unofficial  transcripts after you have completed the application process to provide more information about how long it might take to finish your degree at Carroll.   Please note that students taking dual enrollment credits during high school are not considered to be transfer students, but the transfer of credits policy remains the same.
