We understand that starting or returning to school is a big decision, but you're not alone in this journey. Financial Aid staff is eager to assist you throughout the financial aid process. At Carlow University, tuition for Adult Degree Completers is discounted, per credit, whether you enroll full-time or part-time. 

To apply for Federal Pell Grant, state grant and Federal Direct Student Loan, complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov.Our federal school code is 003303. May 1 is the FAFSA deadline for PA State Grant, but students are encouraged to file even after the deadline has passed. Financial aid is available whether you start classes at the beginning of the semester, or if you wait until the second session begins.


All students are encouraged to apply for outside scholarships

The Carlow PTK Scholarship is available to transfer students with documented membership in Phi Theta Kappa and a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5. There are also a limited number of Carlow endowed scholarships available each year for new students.

Call, visit or email Financial Aid if you have questions, want more information, or just need some encouragement to help you through the process. Along with Student Accounts and the Registrar's Office, we are located in the Student HUB on the 2nd floor of Antonian Hall.  Our phone number is 412-578-6389 or email us at finaid@carlow.edu.
