Adult Students

  • Convenient Online, On-campus, and Hybrid Program Options for Busy Adults

  • Adult students are age 25 or older, have been out of high school for four or more years, and may have children.

    Adult students often juggle work and family responsibilities while pursuing their education. It's because of this, that Carroll offers flexible learning options including daytime, evening and online learning classes to help them reach their educational goals.

    New students should start by reviewing our Areas of Study to identify an area of study to pursue. Then, complete the credit enrollment application and follow these simple steps to apply.

    Before registering for classes, new students must meet with an Academic Advisor. Online registration is only available to eligible returning students.

    The Admissions office (A101)  provides assistance with planning an academic path during its drop-in day and evening hours. Students who have completed college level courses, should bring an unofficial transcript with them so an Admissions Counselor can assist them with class scheduling.

    Paying for education can seem overwhelming, but Carroll offers the FACTS deferred payment plan and financial aid options.

    Licensed child care is available at Carroll. For enrollment information, visit the Child Development Center.
