Tuition Exchange Overview at Carroll University
 

 

Carroll University is a member of three tuition exchanges:
            • The Tuition Exchange (TTE).
            • The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) Tuition Exchange.
            • The Association of Presbyterian Colleges and Universities (APCU) Tuition Exchange

These exchanges are available to full-time, undergraduate students of eligible employees at participating institutions.

Process at Carroll University

  • Student applies to Carroll for full-time admission.
  • Student/parent completes required tuition exchange paperwork at school where the parent works (home or exporting institution). If you don’t know where to complete this, check with your Human Resources Office.
