International Graduate Admission

Deciding to invest in a graduate degree is making the decision to invest in your future. If you are considering graduate school, you should consider what university will allow you to have individualized attention from dedicated faculty who have experience inside and outside of the classroom. As an international student, you will also want to be confident that your instructors and classmates value the unique perspectives your background and culture allow you to share. We are confident that Carroll University students find all of these important criteria in each of our graduate programs.
