Why you should attend?

Carlow University has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Department of Defense to be a preferred provider for education, which allows military students to access additional funds for their education.  Carlow has been named a "military friendly" school by Victory Media because the university provides veterans, as well as current members of the military, the academic and career services support they need to succeed in the classroom and after graduation.  Carlow is also a participant in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, which provides matching funds from the Department of Veteran Attairs to supplement the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
