Steps to Becoming a NEW Carroll Credit Student

  1. Apply Online

  2. Set up your college account. Your account must be set up before proceeding.   
    • You will receive an email from the College the next day with instructions for setting up your account.  
    • Call Admissions at 410-386-8430 if you need help with account setup.
