Here's how we can help

College is an investment—an investment in your potential, and in your future. The world of opportunity that a Carroll education can open up for you is truly astounding.

As you review the cost of attendance, it’s important to keep in mind that Carroll awards generous financial aid packages to approximately 99 percent of our student body. So virtually every student you’ll encounter here is receiving some form of financial aid to help offset the tuition and fees.
