Info for Parents


Parents often have as much say in their children’s college decisions as their children do. For this reason, parents of new Carroll students often have as many questions as their kids have.

Why Should Your Kids Come to Carroll?

  • Carroll credits have transferred to almost 1,000 schools nationwide. 100% of Maryland’s 4-year public colleges and universities accept Carroll credits.

Affordability: The money you’ll save by having your kid attend Carroll for 2 years can pay for their junior year at the 4-year college they transfer to. Carroll also awards approximately $3 million in scholarships and grants to its students each year, making Carroll even more affordable.

Support: Carroll provides all the guidance your child may need to help them achieve their goals, from academic advising to career coaching. We also offer free tutoring for all courses!

  • Class sizes are much smaller than those at larger schools. That means Carroll professors can give your child more attention when they’re having difficulties.
