The article reports that U.S. rating agency Standard & Poor's Corp., has changed its outlook on Carroll College's bonds to stable from negative. The change in rating has come as a result of improved liquidity levels in line with a BBB credit. According to analyst Bobbi Gajwani the BBB rating reflects the college's stable enrollment and demand; balanced financial operations and a steadily rising net tuition income; adequate liquidity relative to operations and debt; and manageable debt levels. Offsetting factors cited include limited admissions selectivity and a matriculation rate that reflects a competitive environment, a high tuition discount rate, and highly concentrated revenue.
