The Catholic University of America is a leading research University with a vibrant undergraduate community. Our residential campus is large, green, and beautiful — and it’s just minutes from downtown Washington, D.C. We are a welcoming faith-filled community guided by academic rigor, committed to social justice, and engaged in high-energy student life.
We invite you to apply for Early Action (deadline: Nov. 1), which is designed for students who have a strong interest in Catholic University and believe that they can present a complete, competitive application during the first semester of their senior year. Early Action is non-binding: students are free to apply to other institutions and do not have to commit to Catholic University until the May 1 National Candidate Reply Date.
Want to visit campus first? Come to an open house program on Sept. 22 or Oct. 27. Meet with faculty and current students to learn about our academic programs, internship opportunities, education abroad programs, campus activities and services, and more.
