Our innovative, experiential business program makes it possible to earn a Catholic University bachelor's degree without leaving Southern Arizona.
Students will jointly enroll at Catholic University and Pima Community College for the freshman and sophomore years, taking courses at both institutions. In the junior and senior, students will enroll solely at Catholic University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Management upon completion.
With tuition averaging under $8,800 per year, students in the Tucson area have access to a high-quality, Catholic undergraduate education that is truly affordable. The program is eligible for Federal Financial Aid, including grants and loans.
We will guide you first through the process of applying to Catholic University. Upon acceptance, you will also complete the Pima Community College application so you can take advantage of the opportunity to participate in this unique program.
The unique partnership between Catholic University and Pima Community College affords students the opportunity to access student service from both institutions. As the CatholicU program is located onsite at Pima’s Downtown Campus, students will have full opportunity to participate in Pima’s catalog of student services and student activities. In addition, Catholic University, in partnership with the Tucson Diocese, will offer a vibrant campus ministry program as well an extensive career development portfolio linking students to local businesses, mentors, short-term employment opportunities, and credit-bearing internships.Learn more about the student experience
