General Requirements

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 the candidate’s past academic performance with the greatest emphasis placed upon 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 work during high school, verbal and quantitative reasoning skills, secondary school report/letter of recommendation, demonstrated commitment to intellectual achievement, and performance on standardized college entrance examinations. In the case of transfer applicants, the college work already completed is considered.
