About the school
Carroll County Community College is a community college providing educational services to the residents of Carroll County, Maryland, United States.

The college underwent several changes, and in 1992, the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) instructed the college to start the process of achieving a degree-granting status like every other two-year community college. By the year 1996, Carroll Community College was granted full accreditation. The said accreditation was reaffirmed again in 2006.
Total program tuition and fees for In-County residents is around $11,700, In-State resident are expected to spend around $17,000 on tuition and fees while Out-of-State residents are to spend about $24,000.
