Steps to Apply

  • For adult undergraduates (graduated from high school four or more years ago) or adult undergraduate transfers applying to Carlow 

    Applicants are evaluated on a rolling admissions basis. Some academic programs have limited enrollment and specific application dates. We require that you complete an application, in addition to all supplemental material (i.e., application, all transcripts, any necessary test scores).

    1. Apply online
    Fill out all the information in the undergraduate online application. If you have any questions, please call 412.578.6059 or contact your admissions counselor (if you have one).

    2. Submit supplemental application materials
    After submitting an online application, send the required supplemental materials to Carlow's Office of Admissions at the address below. If this is your first time attending college, please include an official copy of high school transcript or G.E.D.* and a personal essay describing your goals (if required—check with your counselor). If you are a transfer student, submit an official copy of all college transcripts. Mail supplemental materials to:

    * The transcript is considered official if it contains the seal of the institution and is issued directly to Carlow University. Transcripts delivered to students are considered official only when sealed in an envelope with the institution's seal over the flap. Faxed transcripts are not considered official. Official GED test scores may be accepted in lieu of high school transcripts.
