Our aim at The Catholic University of America - Tucson is to offer complete support in assisting students in comprehending the expenses linked to their education and the available financial aid, streamlining the seemingly complex and time-consuming application process for a smoother experience.
Our personalized Cost of Attendance* at our private college program, which boasts the lowest tuition in Arizona (on average, less than $10,000 per year), provides an estimate of each student's educational expenses for the enrollment period, serving as the college's projected total possible costs for the year.
Please reach out to our Admissions team so we can show you how tuition and pricing apply to your financial needs.
To start the federal financial aid process, apply for federal financial aid at fafsa.ed.gov.
Federal school code for PCC: 007266
Federal school code for CatholicU (CUA): 001437
Please reach out to our Admissions team so we can assist you with filling out your FAFSA.
Students receive Financial Aid typically from the institution where they are taking the most credits (this will also serve as the home institution for aid distribution). Pima Community College usually handles aid in Freshman and Sophomore Years, and The Catholic University for Junior and Senior Years, although specific arrangements may vary.
New Prospective Student
The Catholic University of America assists students in financing their education by offering financial assistance in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study programs.
Continuing students should file their FAFSA annually by February 15 to ensure timely processing. The FAFSA should be filed as soon as accurate income and tax information are available.
As a transfer student, we know the importance of fit for you personally and financially.
International undergraduate students are not eligible for federal financial aid (including federal loans). International graduate students should contact the graduate admissions office for more information on institutional scholarship opportunities.
When your award is finalized, aid will pay your PCC tuition, but it will not automatically pay CatholicU. Instead, if there is money remaining after your PCC tuition has been paid in full, you will receive the remaining aid amount as a refund. The student is responsible for all payment of CatholicU charges paid through Cardinal Pay.
