We’re excited to offer individual in-person visits! Visits last about two hours and will include a campus tour and meeting with an admissions and financial aid representative. Each family will be limited to four visitors including the prospective student. We’ll continue to offer virtual visits throughout the summer as well.

Put those AP credits to use right from the start. Carthage accepts a maximum of 32 credit hours of alternative credit to be counted toward graduation, including Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) credits.
College is about more than books and tests. Be prepared to learn as much outside of the classroom as you will in class. Get involved in student organizations, attend world-class concerts or hear comedians, work on the campus newspaper, sample all the coffee drinks at Starbucks, play in the orchestra, or build a set for a play. Dive in, make friends, and explore all the new ideas you’ll share.
“Carthage was really the only school that allowed me the freedom to pursue all of my passions at once. I was unable to study both IPE and accounting at any other school, and here I am able to take on both as full majors alongside a minor.”
“The biggest surprise for me here at Carthage was how much I actually enjoy my classes. I came into college with an undecided major, but once I realized social work was perfect for me and started taking the courses, I fell in love even more with this career path.”
“It was not at all easy to find a college that had Mandarin Chinese, dance, and chemistry. When I visited Carthage, I fell in love with the campus, and the welcoming professors, staff, and students that I have met make me feel right at home.”
“My biggest surprise so far at Carthage has been the extent of opportunities available to students. I have traveled to the Caribbean, attended a dance conference in Minnesota, and choreographed a piece for the student dance show. I feel so grateful for all of these opportunities and am enthusiastic to experience even more.”
