PA TRAC stands for The Pennsylvania Transfer and Articulation Center. It's an effort by the commonwealth of Pennsylvania to coordinate credit transfers among participating educational institutions. Carlow is one of those participating institutions -- you can see a whole list of the others on the PA TRAC site. You can even use our online calculator to see which credits from which schools you can bring with you to Carlow. 

If you're a CCAC graduate, it's even easier than that. Provided you meet our admission requirements, your associate's degree lets you seamlessly slide right into Carlow University as a junior. 

Here's a list of the CCAC majors and their equivalent Carlow majors. Even if you don't see your own CCAC degree listed here, you can always bring the degree you do have and come to Carlow as a Liberal Studies major.
