Want to take your professional career to the next level? Carlow University will help you reach your goals. We are a learner-centered college which means our focus is on YOU.

Juggling the demands of work, family, and classes may be easier than you think! For decades, Carlow’s graduate programs have been specifically designed to meet the demands of adult students by offering intimate class sizes, flexible formats, and excellent faculty.

Now that you've decided to pursue your graduate degree, let the Financial Aid Office help you navigate the financial aid process. 


Financial aid is awarded annually for one academic year. Continuation of an award requires an annual review of your financial need, based on that year’s need analysis formula, and academic progress which is reviewed each semester. 

  • Step 1 - Apply to Carlow.
  • Step 2 - Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Carlow's school code is 003303. April 1 is the preferred filing date for returning students; May 1 is the preferred filing date for new students. 
  • Step 3 - Review all our financial aid options, including scholarship and grant opportunities.

After we receive your FAFSA results, you will receive a financial aid award letter. About one-third of students may be selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education, which may require submission of additional documentation. You will be notified if any information is needed to complete your file. If you have any questions during this process, please contact us at 412.578.6058 or finaid@carlow.edu. Our office is located in the Student Hub in Antonian Hall, 2nd floor.

The two sections below will help you learn about the different types of financial aid options available to Graduate students:
