The Catholic University of America is excited to launch a brand new Family Portal called the "Family Nest" that will enhance your Cardinal experience! This new portal will allow for you to customize information you receive from Catholic U based on interests, your student's experiences, and much more.

One of the greatest features of this portal is that everything you need is now in one centralized location and there is no limit to how many family members sign up. So if you have grandparents, aunts, uncles, or any other family and friends who want to be kept in the loop they're welcome to sign up too.

The Family Nest also has a FERPA component that allows parents to view student records to stay informed and help their students stay on track. This includes financial aid information, holds on your students accounts, account balances, disciplinary records, grade(s), class schedule, enrollment status and graduation information. Students control exactly which records are shared.

The goal of the Family Nest is to make things easier on you. If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback, please let us know at
