Take college classes in high school

You can earn college credits in high school with Carlow University’s College in High School (CHS) program. 

Through CHS, you can take college-level courses at your high school or Carlow University. Upon successful completion (grade C or better), you will earn college credit, which will be recorded on a Carlow University official transcript.
