Study from Home, Washington, D.C., or Anywhere this Summer!

Registration for Summer 2016 begins on March 15, 2016!

Current Catholic University Students

Current students can register for summer courses just as they would for the regular academic year. That's true for online classes, too.

Visiting Students

The Catholic University of America welcomes applications from undergraduate and graduate students from other colleges and universities.

  • Find summer courses.
  • Talk to an advisor at your home institution to ensure that credit earned at Catholic University will transfer.
  • Apply online, pay the nonrefundable $25 application fee, and send transcripts from the college you currently or most recently attended to:

The Catholic University of America
Office of Admission - Catholic University Summer

We will evaluate your application as soon as it is complete. Admitted students will receive a confirmation letter with information about registering for classes in Cardinal Station (navigation guide).

You can also apply for on-campus housing, if necessary.


  • Students who plan to attend through the Consortium should contact the Registrar's office at their home institution.
