Intensive English Language Program
Conditional Acceptance and Transitioning to a Degree

Some students know they want a degree from Carroll but need to improve their English language proficiency first. Other students planned to study just English and then decided Carroll was the right place for them to earn a degree. Either way, transitioning to your undergraduate or graduate degree after completing the Intensive English Language program is a simple process.

Intensive English Language Program Alumni Grant

All students who complete the Carroll University Intensive English Language program (minimum enrollment of one semester) and matriculate into a Carroll University undergraduate degree program will receive a renewable $1,000 Intensive English Language Program Alumni Grant while they are enrolled in an undergraduate program at Carroll University. This grant does not require an additional application and is on top of the substantial International Student Scholarships offered to international undergraduates at Carroll University.

Applying for entry to a degree program - After completing Carroll University’s Intensive English Language program

As you complete Carroll University’s Intensive English Language Program, you may decide that you wish to continue your studies and invest in a Carroll University undergraduate or graduate program.

Completing Intensive English Language coursework and degree coursework simultaneously

Students at the Advanced level of the Intensive English Language program may be eligible to begin coursework in their degree program at the same time as completing the Intensive English Language program. In order to participate in this type of program which bridges the Intensive English Language coursework with the degree coursework, students must have already been conditionally accepted into their degree program of interest.

If you have been accepted into a Carroll University degree program but have not yet met the English Language Proficiency requirement and are interested in completing Intensive English Language coursework and degree coursework at the same time, please email international@carrollu.edu with a letter outlining your interest and qualifications for this type of program.
