What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
With all doctorate professors, Carroll University's academic rigor challenges your mind and knowledge in every way possible. To up the ante, not only do you enroll in courses for your major, but general education credits (GE1) in humanities, sciences, mathematics, arts, philosophy, and history are required throughout your four years. To push you even further, a 200 level course must be taken in any of those categories excluding your major (GE2). Luckily, there is a wide variety of courses in each subject that you can pick advantageously so you will excel. Carroll University takes pride in the fact that all students can receive their bachelor's degree within four years or less; they make sure you are well-rounded in all fields and learned in your major. Want to know what the courses are like? Professors push their students out of the regurgitating information phase to the critical analysis level. All professors integrate multiple styles of learning such as visual, conceptual, and problem solving. They take different approaches for exams including: multiple choice, short answer, essay, and diagrams. Pop quizzes or misleading information on exams or quizzes will never occur in Carroll's classrooms. Everything in lecture is what students will be tested on. Another perk at Carroll is the small class sizes that average at 23 students, labs at 13, and lectures that never exceed 90 students. Professors learn all their studentsâ?? names and personal things about them; you're a name, not a number. Freshman year first exam on a Friday, I was terribly ill and came into class looking like I had just been hit by a truck, in fact, that was the exact phrase my professor used. He told me to go back to my dorm and sleep and come in on Monday and take the exam then. Your professors care and can write you one heck of a letter of recommendation someday as well!

Depends on which program you're in and how smart you are. If you don't go to class you'll fail. So go to class!
Classes at Carroll University are without a doubt challenging, but professors and even peers are always willing to help out in any way possible. All professors allow questions by email at anytime, some even let you call them personally for assistance to make sure students succeed with the rigorous classes.

Carroll University is able to give you the information you will need in your career. Many graduates are able to get jobs in their field soon after college.

I haven't had classes at Carroll yet because I don't currently go there, but I have friends who attend and love the pace of their classes.
