Admission Process

To apply for admission to Carroll University you need to submit the following documents:

  1. Apply directly online or use Common Application.
    • There is never a fee to apply to Carroll University.
  2. Submit a transcript
    • High school students can submit 6, 7 or 8 semester transcripts. Unofficial transcripts will be accepted for admission purposes.
    • Transfer students must submit official transcripts from ALL institutions of higher education attended.
  3. Standardized Test Scores
    • Carroll University is test-optional.
    • Test Optional Policy:
      • We know that every Carroll student is more than a number or a test score, and we also know that the answer to the question, “What’s a good ACT or SAT score?” varies from student to student. At Carroll University, we’ll take the guesswork out. If you send us your ACT or SAT score, we’ll use it only if it helps your application and merit scholarship. Don’t want to send a score? No problem! We’ll use the other information in your application to consider you for both admission and scholarships. 

Please note: Additional documentation may be requested.

Evaluation for acceptance generally takes two to three weeks and is done on a rolling basis. To monitor the status of your application, log into your portal at apply.carrollu.edu/status.
