International Application for Admission

Every International applicant needs to return a completed international application with the $55 nonrefundable application fee. Payment must be in the form of a check or money order payable in U.S. currency to The Catholic University of America.

International students applying to Catholic University must have successfully completed a university preparatory course of study at a secondary school (a minimum of 12 years of primary and secondary school training comprising the equivalent to a U.S. high school diploma). Upon receipt of your completed application and required admission materials, your credentials are reviewed by members of the admission staff. 

The Catholic University of America is committed to the belief that "with respect to the fundamental rights of the person, every type of discrimination, whether social or cultural, whether based on sex, race, color, social condition, language, or religion, is to be overcome and eradicated as contrary to God's intent." Accordingly, it is the policy of the University to comply fully with provisions of federal and local laws and regulations, where applicable, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of criteria specified in those laws and regulations in educational programs and activities, including admission.
