Admissions information for adult undergraduate students
Carlow offers convenient and accelerated formats to help adult undergraduates — those who earned a high school diploma more than four years ago — transition to college and achieve personal and professional goals.
Admissions process overview
Complete application: Create a Bridge to Carlow account, fill out an application and make sure your transcripts have been sent.
Receive admissions decision: Check your admissions status through Bridge to Carlow. We operate on rolling admissions. Admissions decisions generally occur within two weeks after your application has been submitted.
Confirm intent to enroll: After acceptance, log in to Bridge to Carlow and submit the enrollment reply form to secure your spot.
Register for classes: Meet with the student success coordinator to review your transfer credit evaluation and establish your course schedule for your first semester.
The transfer credit evaluation will outline which curricular requirements at Carlow have been satisfied by transfer credit, and will identify what is still necessary to complete your degree. During the evaluation process, you may be asked to supply a syllabus from certain courses. Your credit evaluation will be conducted once all final official transcripts are received and you have registered for classes.
