COVID-19 Information

Catholic University welcomes international students. While admission status to Catholic University will not change during the COVID-19 outbreak, international travel and visa policies are constantly updated by U.S. and foreign governments. Please keep apprised of visa and travel updates from both the United States and your home country. Should you need to defer your admission or enrollment, our staff will be happy to help you with that process. We also wish we could welcome you to visit our campus and meet with our faculty. Our primary concern right now at Catholic University is the safety, health, and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. Though we are not able to invite you to visit campus in person at this time, we are still available to provide support and answer any questions regarding the graduate application process. In the meantime, our virtual tour and interactive map may provide you with an idea of what campus is like.

International students and scholars from more than 70 countries enrich our classrooms and campus culture at Catholic University.

The University has a dedicated team — International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) — to provide a variety of support services and programs to help international students and scholars thrive. We coordinate educational and cultural programs and events throughout the year to help international students, scholars, and families feel at home.
