Early Access Open House
Attend the Early Access Open House on August 7 at 7:00 pm in Trinity Hall. Both Helena Public Schools and Carroll staff will be on hand to answer questions about classes, scheduling, and registration.
The Carroll Early Access program provides an authentic, on-campus college experience for local Helena students tuition-free. High school juniors and seniors may take up to two classes per semester from the approved course list. Most courses are three credits but those that offer a lab component will be four credits. Classes will be taught by Carroll's outstanding professors and you will learn alongside current Carroll students on Carroll's campus. Students who complete the courses will receive Carroll College credits, which can be used at Carroll to pursue a future degree or transferred to another institution. While tuition is free, there is a nominal $60 student fee per semester and some classes have an additional course fee (such as labs) to cover supplies. In addition to these fees, students are responsible for the purchase of their own books and supplies. Families are responsible for the student's transportation to and from campus.
Students enrolled in the program will be issued a Carroll ID that will provide access to Carroll's Corette Library as well as Carroll home athletic and performing arts events. Students will be invited to attend lectures and other academic events available to all Carroll students. A parking pass will also be provided for students to park in specified areas on campus.
