Transfer Requirements

  • Admission to Carlow University is determined on an individual basis. SAT/ACT scores are not required for transfer students, but may be one of the factors considered if you have minimal college credit.

    Carlow accepts transfer credits from accredited programs and colleges. We will make every attempt to utilize the academic credits you've earned with those of Carlow's curriculum and standards.

    A transfer course evaluation will be completed to approximate if and how courses will transfer. Grades must be a "C" or above to be transferred.


    Students transferring to Carlow for programs in:

    • Social Work must have a minimum 2.5 GPA
    • Perfusion Technology must have a minimum 2.8 GPA
    • Education or Nursing must have a minimum 3.0 GPA
    • All other programs require a minimum 2.0 GPA


    When to Transfer

    • BSN program - Spaces are limited and highly competitive; early application is recommended.
    • RN-to-BSN program  - You may apply anytime for spring or fall admission.
    • All other programs - We operate on a rolling admissions basis for transfers, typically through August 1 each year for the fall, and December 1 for the spring, or as long as space allows. However, you are encouraged to apply as early as possible. 

    Transfer Credit Evaluation

    Transfer credit evaluation determines whether or not incoming transfer students must complete the University’s placement tests prior to enrollment. Placement tests will determine which skills or core classes students will complete once enrolled. For more information, please contact your transfer counselor.
