How can my school participate in Carlow's College in High School program?

College in High School (CHS) is an excellent opportunity for students to begin their university studies while still in high school.  It also helps them save money, as the cost of a CHS course is much cheaper than its on-campus equivalent.  While Carlow CHS course credits are accepted by many other schools, students with Carlow CHS credit who then enroll at Carlow save even more money with our College in High School Award ($2,000/year).  You can find more information about our program here or by contacting Jo Danhires at 412.578.6059 or ljdanhires@carlow.edu.

How does my graduating senior verify enrollment at Carlow for outside scholarships/awards?

If one of your students is coming to Carlow in the fall and needs to verify enrollment for a scholarship (or anything other purpose), the student needs to fill out this form and submit it to the Registrar's Office. It can be mailed (Office of the Registrar, 3333 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213), scanned and emailed to registrar@carlow.edu, or faxed to 412.578.6689. The Registrar's Office can be reached at 412.578.6389.

For Catholic schools within the Diocese of Pittsburgh: How do I verify my student's enrollment in Catholic schools for the Diocese of Pittsburgh Catholic School Award?

Thanks to a partnership with the Diocese of Pittsburgh, students who graduate from a Catholic high school within the diocese will receive a $2,500/year Pittsburgh Catholic High School award.  Students who attended Catholic schools within the diocese for grades 1-12 can receive an additional $2,500/year, bringing their award up to $5,000/year.  To earn the higher award, students must complete this form and return it to the Office of Admissions.  You-or another school official-will be required to verify and sign this form before submission.
