With a wide support network, Pittsburgh Promise students have the opportunity to thrive personally and academically at Carlow University. Once enrolled at Carlow, you’ll join our Keeping the Promise group, a supportive, diverse community of classmates, mentors and friends. Your support network will also include a personal success coach who will help you transition to college life and access specialized tutoring, study groups, and stipends for internships.
You will meet one-on-one with your success coach to explore your academic strengths and challenges, and create goals to achieve academic success. You may schedule sessions as often as you’d like.
During this time, develop valuable skills including:
Carlow offers additional University resources to further support you on your academic journey that you may be referred to by your success coach.
Complete two 30-minute coaching sessions with your success coach each semester and earn a $100 check stipend.
Our learning workshops are designed to help you improve your academic and personal skills. Offered weekly, online and in person, they cover a range of topics including:
Complete nine weekly workshops (including discussion questions) and one end of semester reflection-based activity and earn a $100 gift card to the bookstore.
Continue your personal and professional development with a sponsored internship at one of our non-profit partners. Build your resume with competitive pay ($17/hour), work alongside a group of your peers, experience opportunities for mentorship and supervision, and access workshops and training.
Internships are open to first-year or sophomore promise students enrolled full time at Carlow with less than 60 credits completed.
