Update: In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, and in order to allow campus visitors in a safe and manageable way, the Office of Undergraduate Admission will be open and operated by a limited number of staff members each day. However, all members of the counseling staff are available whether they are on campus or working remotely. Email messages to individual staff members or to cua-admissions@cua.edu will be the best way to communicate during this period.  

We wish you good health and success with your current studies - especially for those of you who have transitioned to online learning.

Admission Counseling Staff

Each member of our admission staff is assigned to various geographic areas throughout the country and world. The counselor assigned to your region will be your main point of contact throughout the admission process, and will ultimately be the person who reads your application for admission.
