Continuing Studies programs at Carthage have been designed and supported with one objective in mind: helping you succeed in college. Every adult student is assigned an admissions coordinator/academic advisor. Your admissions coordinator and advisor will walk you through every step as you become a Carthage student.
Your admissions coordinator can help you choose your program, transfer credits, enroll, arrange financial aid, and register for classes. Once you begin your studies, your academic advisor will become a big part of your support system here at Carthage. He or she will answer your questions and offer guidance throughout your education.
